A SIX-YEAR-OLD girl fell out of a moving vehicle while being transported home from her school in Everest Heights in Verulam last week.

A member of Reaction Unit South Africa was on patrol on High Street in Grange when he witnessed the child fall out of a Toyota Conquest as it turned onto Moss Street. The officer stopped to assist and called out paramedics to assess the child who was found not to have sustained any injuries.

It was established that two children were seated in the front seat when the door suddenly opened as the vehicle turned at the T-junction. The driver confirmed that she runs a lift club and was in the process of dropping off the children when the accident occurred.

Six children were in the vehicle at the time of the accident. — Supplied.
