IRON BOY: Toddler Boy Survives After Being Run Over Twice By Car That Parked On His Head

A three-year-old boy from Mexico has survived after being run over by a car that parked on his head – and then drove off running his body over again apparently without even noticing him.

Surveillance cameras captured a 39-second-long video showing the little one, only identified as Angel N. by media, being crushed by an unmindful driver reversing his vehicle without spotting the child.

In the footage, the boy ducks under the car to apparently look for his toy when the driver runs over him and then stops the car right on Angel’s body, seemingly on his head.

The cry of another child who witnessed the incident alerts Angel’s parents who immediately rush to release him after the little boy found himself under the tires.

At that moment the vehicle moves forward and crushes the boy again, before his father takes him out and carries him in his arms out of the video camera’s reach.

The incident, according to media reports, occurred in the Colonia Carlos Hank Gonzalez neighbourhood in the Mexican capital on Tuesday, 16th August 2021.

Angel was immediately transferred to the hospital after the incident.

However, to his parents’ utmost delight, doctors released three-year-old Angel from the hospital claiming he was perfectly healthy as they found no injuries.

Then reporter Carlos Jimenez confirmed on his Twitter account on Wednesday that updated medical reports showed the boy only suffered minor injuries.
