Boy, 3, saved from traffic stunt

CHINA - A child running through a busy street is easily a parent’s worst nightmare but imagine your toddler riding a toy motorcycling through rush hour traffic.

A three-year-old was rescued by a police officer after riding his toy cycle through a busy intersection in China.

In a video uploaded to YouTube the toddler can be seen dodging rush hour traffic across a busy crossroads in the eastern city of Wenzhou. Buses and cars can be seen driving passing by the boy.

An officer sportted the child and led him to safety.

The officer said: "It took place at about 5.30pm during rush hour, with huge passenger and traffic flows,"

The child was left in the care of his grandfather who insisted he always kept a close eye on the boy. The grandfather says he lost track of the boy when he went to the bathroom.

The child was reunited with his grandfather after the ordeal.
