A CCTV on a street in the tourist town of Munnar in Kerala captured a strange sight of a one-year-old girl crawling on a dark and deserted road.
The toddler was found by forest officials at a check-post nearby. It later emerged that the girl had fallen off a speeding SUV while her parents were asleep. According to reports in NDTV, the little girl was returning home with her parents and other relatives from neighbouring Tamil Nadu after performing temple rituals. She fell off the moving vehicle. She was then seen crawling on the middle of the road in a forested area.
The girl sustained minor injuries on her head but was miraculously rescued by forest officials who reported the matter to police. She was later reunited with her parents who realised she was missing after they had travelled around 50kms and filed a police complaint, according to reports in Matrubhumi.

Sub-Inspector, Santosh KM said "I got the alarm call around 9:40 pm. By 10:00 pm, the infant was with us and medical aid was given. Messages were passed to all police station limits. By 11:00 pm, we got to know that a child missing complaint had been filed and we called the parents. The child has been safely reunited."
The girl, who has a brother and a sister, was reportedly sitting in her mother's lap in the back of the SUV. The mother was tired and fell asleep, and did not realise that the girl had fallen off the vehicle.
