Two-Year-Old In Child Seat Falls From Moving Car, Mother Keeps On Driving…

A shocking moment was captured by a dash camera in Mankato, Minnesota on Monday morning.

The footage shows a two-year-old child in a car seat falling out of a moving vehicle. The cammer was left absolutely gobsmacked as he saw the car seat with the toddler in it falling from the car he was following on Minnesota Street.

The baby fell out of the rear driver’s side door of the car, pointing at irresponsible behavior from the mother who was driving the car at the time. “If it didn’t happen in front of me, I’d never have believed it,” Chad Cheddar Mock, the truck driver whose dashcam captured the incident, wrote on Facebook.

The video shows the rear driver’s side door opening as the car goes around a bend, throwing the baby seat out of the car on the asphalt, right in the middle of the road. The cammer immediately stopped his car and ran to help the baby, signaling an oncoming car to slow down. Shockingly, the mother kept driving the vehicle, unaware the toddler had fallen out of the car.

Thankfully, the child was found to be okay after paramedics checked for any injuries. Mock told Fox 9 a woman later walked back to get the baby. According to the police, the baby was properly strapped into the seat, but the child seat wasn’t fastened to the vehicle seat. Still, that doesn’t clarify why the rear door opened — it’s hard to believe the baby was responsible for that.

In the wake of this disturbing incident, authorities are requesting charges of child endangerment and child restraint system not fastened.

    When I saw this on the TV news, I couldn’t understand for the life of me how the mother missed the open rear door in her side rearview mirror. Probably texting or Twittering.

    Maybe the baby fell from a Jeep with the doors off.

  • I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S MORE DISTRESSING THE FACT THAT THE MOTHER HAD NO IDEA HER KID WAS GONE OR THAT 78% OF CARS SEATS ARE INCORRECTLY INSTALLED.

    How can you not hear the noise? How can you not feel the change in temperature from the draft? How did it take so long for her to come back?

  • Something’s fishy. After the baby fell, she hit the brakes, nearly stopped at a green light, but then took off and actually accelerated from the scene. She knew the baby fell out, and she intentionally took off.
