A surveillance video camera in China has captured a dramatic scene that stresses the importance of keeping young children buckled in car seats while the driver concentrates on traffic.

The video shows a four-year-old girl falling from a car as it crosses a busy intersection in the city of Wenzhou, in China's Zhejiang province, and her dad immediately rushing to rescue her.

After the father jumps from the still-moving car, the vehicle ends up hitting a tree on the sidewalk.
