Toddler In A Car Seat Falls Out Of Speeding Car

God certainly put truck driver Chad Mock in the right place at the right time when a toddler in a car seat falls out of the back of a moving car. Chad not only saved the terrified girl from harm, but his dashcam caught the whole thing on film, too!

Chad “Cheddar” Mock has been a truck driver for more than 20 years. He has seen a lot in that time, but never anything like what he was about to witness. As he rounded the turn on a busy street in Mankato, Minnesota, the unthinkable happened. The driver’s side rear door on the silver car in front of Chad suddenly popped open. A car seat fell out, but to Chad’s shock and horror, the seat wasn’t empty.

A 2-year-old girl sat strapped into the car seat. "If it didn’t happen in front of me I'd never have believed it," Chad wrote when recalling the incident on social media. Apparently, while the child was strapped into the car seat, the car seat itself wasn’t properly installed in the vehicle. Instead of landing on the child, the seat hit the ground and took the brunt of the fall.

That’s when this quick-thinking truck driver honked his horn and immediately jumped out of his truck. He waved his arms furiously as the car sped away, to try and get the driver’s attention. At the same time, he ran to the car seat to check on the little girl and keep other cars from hitting her.

God certainly had His hand on this little girl, as she remained completely unharmed. Her distraught mother showed up at the scene on foot about 15-20 minutes later. Authorities are still investigating the case and the toddler’s parents face child endangerment charges. As for the heroic truck driver, Chad is just glad the 2-year-old girl is ok and that he was there to save her!
