The footage shows a group of around 15 people rushing over to lift the Ford Focus after it crashed into the boy in Poplar, East London, last night.

Emergency crews were scrambled and the boy was rushed to hospital where he remains in a critical condition.

A video posted on Facebook shows passers-by screaming for help after the horror unfolded.

Hero onlookers can then be seen pulling the one-and-a-half tonne car off the boy after he was left wedged underneath it.

Dramatic pictures also show smoke billowing from the crumpled car with the bonnet mangled after hitting a bollard.


Cops are now appealing for witnesses and are currently hunting the driver, who fled the scene after the collision yesterday at around 7pm.

Scotland Yard said: “Anyone with information including related dash-cam footage is asked to call police via 101 quoting reference Cad 6546/09Sep.

“Or alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
