A terrified young girl crashed a high-speed electric motor scooter into a shop after apparently starting up the bike.
Shocking CCTV footage of the prang shows the girl hurtling straight into a wall and screaming in terror.
The shop owner only just jumps out of her path as the scooter scatters a chair, a flowerpot and a table before coming to a jarring halt.
Seconds later a woman – believed to be the child’s mother – runs in and scoops up the bawling youngster before the footage ends.
The bizarre crash took place in Kaizhou, which is a district in the municipality of Chongqing in central China, on Tuesday, 28th June.
Chinese media report that no one was injured and that the store owner did not seek compensation.
