Toddler’s miraculous motorcycle escape

 

A BABY has miraculously survived unscathed after being left riding on a motorbike alone and crashing into a bush in southern India this week.

Dashcam footage of the pileup shared by cops shows two men and a woman being knocked off their motorbikes on a busy road in Bengaluru, Karnataka, on August 19.

A motorbike with a man and woman on board is seen driving at a high speed and hitting a scooter at the back, sending the riders flying from their seats.

A man is seen falling off the red scooter. But the tiny child is left alone on one of the bikes, which continues driving.

It continues accelerating without a driver and cuts across three lanes.

Drivers following behind were alerted, some of them hitting their brakes to avoid a collision. But the bike crashes into a road divider and hurls the baby off into a bush.

Onlookers get out of their cars and run to check on the child.

Amazingly, the infant escaped without suffering serious injuries.

Police accused the riders of a string of offences, including speeding, using mobile phones, overtaking from the left and not wearing safety helmets.

It's not clear if the motorcyclists have been prosecuted.
