Dash cam video: Toddler in car seat falls out of moving vehicle
MANKATO, Minn. (WZTV) - Dash cam video shows the terrifying moment a toddler in a car seat fell out of a moving car.
According to FOX 9 in Minnesota, Chad Cheddar Mock was driving Monday morning when he saw the whole thing right before his eyes.
A car seat holding a 2-year-old fell out of the car in front of him and right onto the road. The car seat appeared to come from the driver's rear side door.
"If it didn't happen in front of me, I'd never have believed it," Mock wrote on Facebook.
FOX 9 reported police responded and found the child was properly strapped into the seat - "but the car seat wasn't fastened to the vehicle seat," the station said.
Mock told FOX 9 that the mother did walk back to get her child. Police are reportedly pursuing child endangerment and child restraint charges.
