A 3-year-old boy determined to visit his mother at work set off on a harrowing journey earlier this month on his toy bike.

The toddler rode for 1.3 miles before entering a busy intersection in the Chinese city of Wenzhou. Several buses nearly squashed the tot, driving past, apparently unaware of his presence, as he pushed onward into oncoming traffic. Other cars followed, narrowly missing.

But the boy was either unaware of the danger around him or undeterred by it. He pushed ahead on the toy cycle, which was battery powered. A policeman named Zhang saw the boy in traffic, and rescued him before tragedy struck, according to MSNBC.com.

Asked by the policeman if he was scared at any point during his journey to see his mom, who worked at a nearby KFC, the toddler merely said he had already learned how to cross a street.

        I'd like to think so, but they seem to care so little for life, It wouldn't shock me if she were merely annoyed.

      DavidC, you are absolutley right. They have no regard for children, remember the little girl that got ran over several times by the workers in a warehouse they did nothing, and poor girl died from her injurys. What is wrong with these people? I am glad to hear the little boy wasn't injured, but someone should have stopped as soon as he was spotted.

        In China you are not to stop in traffic for anything. That's the law, don't stop until you get home. That is why traffic moves so fast..

        That story is burned in my brain and my anxiety level rises when I think about it. Those are the stories that make me feel mankind needs to be erased and start over.

      Many considered this an incident that ended well for the toddler riding a bike and the police brought the child back to the family and everything was solved as in the majority of the countries in the world...except for the United States, a big brother country ( call hypocritally a democratic nation ). The case would had been different with a very serious problem, according to the police and the social service agency ...

        It IS a very serious problem and not the first time something like this has happened. Someone already mentioned the poor little girl what was run over not once, but TWICE by the same van! As she lay in the road broken up, people ignored her, some stopped to look at her and moved on. About 15 minutes later her aunt comes out, picks her up like a rag doll, and drags her off. It's amazing the child lasted as long as she did before passing away. A couple of weeks ago a toddler jumped out of a moving vehicle into traffic. At least that father cared enough to stop, leap out of the car and go after her. Now this? If these people care so little about their children, they shouldn't have them.

      I don't think Americans understand how it is in China with children. They toss girls away like trash because boys are more revered. So many people...........

      The difference between the chinese 3 year olds and american 3 year olds is the chinese kid acts like he's 15 and the american kid acts like he's 3 months old.
      • 2 Years Ago
      "apparently unaware of his presence" ???? My ass. They saw the kid. Just like they saw that girl dieing in the street after she was run over twice. Sickening!!!
