The hocking moment a mother and her small child fell out of a car as it made a sharp U-turn in the road was captured by a fellow motorist
The car was parked by the side of the road but quickly turned 180 degrees to drive off in the opposite direction.
But midway through the manoeuvre, one of the back doors flew open and the woman and her child fell out and landed in the road.
The driver, believed to be the woman’s husband and the child’s father, jumpsed out to help them.
The scene was caught on the dash cam of a fellow driver in the city of Sevastopol in south west Russia and posted on Russian social media website, VKontakte.
One user suggested the woman had accidentally leaned on the door handle as the car turned sharply in the road.
But users slammed the parents for failing to ensure the youngster was secured in a child seat.
