A five-year-old boy escaped with only minor injuries when he was thrown from a car in an accident and nearly run over by a bus.
Terrifying footage shows the child being catapulted into the street when the car he was traveling in collided with the bus in Itatiba, Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The boy then skidded down the street next to the bus and narrowly avoided going under the wheels.
CCTV footage of the city center captured the dramatic accident on October 12.
In the video, the bus is speeding down the main road as a gray car suddenly pops up from the right and crashes into it.
The hood of the car was damaged and started to spin in the road as the bus continued to stomp forward.

A small child was thrown from the car and may tumble dangerously close to the wheels of the bus as it continues to move forward.
The boy continued to slide down the road, side by side with the bus, narrowly avoiding getting trapped underneath.
After the bus finally pulled away, it rolled over and sat up, running to a visibly panicked woman who got out of the car whose hood was on fire.
The woman picked up the young boy and carried him to the side of the road, where she checked for injuries as another young woman and child got out of the car.
The boy was taken to a local hospital, where he was under observation and doing well at the time of the report.

According to the bus driver, the accident happened after the driver jumped through a red light.
While he refused to take a breath test, the driver was tested to see if he was intoxicated at the time of the accident at the hospital.
The car was impounded after it turned out that the driver’s license had expired.
The police are continuing the investigation.
