Watch: Traffic Cop Dashes Across Street in Guizhou, China to Save Toddler


This is a good policeman.

In Tongren, Guizhou Province on June 19, a fast-acting cop dashed across the street, in front of a car, to save a two-year-old child.

The toddler was riding in a motorcycle stopped in the middle of the street when he reportedly saw his mother on the side of the road. Without any awareness of “street” or “traffic” or “oh-my-god-it’s-an-incoming-car!” the child dashed toward his mom.

Luckily for him (and everyone), a cop on the other side of the road saw him and ran out to snatch him.

The driver of the motorcycle was chided for violating a rule: children under 12 aren’t allowed to ride on motorcycles or scooters. I guess we now know why.
