An unbelievable moment in which a young boy gets run over by a car and then miraculously hops back up straight afterwards is doing the rounds on social media.

The shocking incident happened in a Chinese town where the unnamed boy’s parents own a shop.

CCTV footage shows the little boy squatting down in front of a white car parked on the side of a dirt road.

It appears he’s is sheltering himself from the sun as he plays in front of the vehicle.

The car’s owner – having no idea the child is there – proceeds to start his engine and shockingly drives right over the little boy, who had no time to react and move out of the vehicle’s path.

The horrific footage shows how the car’s front and back tyres drive straight over the helpless kid’s back after he's knocked to the ground.

Miraculously, and to everyone’s surprise, the boy quickly jumps to his feet and runs to his parents’ shop.

The youngster seemed to suffer only minor injuries, but it’s unclear whether he was taken to hospital for a check-up.

Local authorities in China also didn’t say whether charges were laid against the driver of the vehicle.
