Young Boy Hit By Car, Walks Away


TURKEY-- CCTV images broadcast on Turkish television showed a small boy being hit by a car and flying through the air, before getting up and walking away.

The accident happened on 20 June in the town of Sanliurfa in the south east of the country.

The CCTV video showed a car flying off the street and hitting four-year-old Muhammet Dirlik, knocking him down a flight of steps.

He then picked himself up and walked off.

A second taller boy can be seen running away from the fast-moving vehicle.

The car crashed through the front window of a shop and was hauled back up onto the street with the help of a crowd of onlookers.

In an interview on Monday, the boy, Muhammet Dirlik, said he had been wandering around on the pavement when the car knocked into him, but he had not been hurt.

The boy's father Ibrahim Halil Dirlik, said the family had not realised until the next day that Muhammet had actually been hit by the car, and has assumed he was crying because he had been upset at witnessing the accident.

The car's driver reportedly said he swerved to avoid running over a puppy and lost control of the car.
