A young boy accidentally fell out of a moving vehicle on a busy Mexican road and held onto the door for dear life before being pulled back in.
Dramatic footage captured from a biker in Puebla, Mexico, shows the moment a grey Toyota SUV’s door swung open when making a left turn on a busy intersection as a boy in a red shirt could be spotted holding onto the door.
Someone inside the vehicle screams as the boy desperately hangs onto the door while his feet begin to drag on the road.
The biker filming the harrowing scene appears to speed up to try and catch the boy.
The SUV is able to come to a stop and an older person grabs the boy and sits him away from the door as a man pops out of the passenger seat to asses the situation.
The biker, speaking in Spanish, asks if the boy is okay. After receiving confirmation that the child is alright, the biker lets out a sigh of relief and drives away.
