saudi, accident, girl gets run over


DISCLAIMER: The visuals may be disturbing for some viewers.

A video of a little girl being run over by a car has gone viral online.

Netizens have been sharing a CCTV footage - reportedly - from a petrol pump in Saudi Arabia's Taif city, showing a little girl playing with a ball, when she suddenly runs into fuel filling area to catch the ball. At that very moment, an incoming SUV runs over her - to her family's horror.

The white car can be seen driving into the station, when the girl suddenly runs in front of it. Instantaneously, two men, including her father, run to her safety.

The driver slows down at first to check on the girl, but then races away as the angry father gives chase.

Fortunately, the little girl survived. There are no reports on her injuries - if any - but a harrowing experience nonetheless for her, the family and the driver.
