How a toddler in the road stopped a bus in its tracks


Recently released video shows the dramatic moment a bus was forced to slam on the brakes, when the driver spotted a toddler sitting in the road.

Driver Mike Hubbard said he saw something moving in the road, but was not sure what it was.

It was only when his bus stopped a couple of metres short, that he realised it was a child.

The girl's mother said she had no idea how she had got into the road but that she must have crawled out.

The incident happened in May 2009, in San Antonio in the US.
