A 6-year-old in New York City is very lucky to be alive right now!
On Sunday afternoon, the autistic boy was driving his miniature, battery-powered ATV around a city park.
But after a short while, family members lost track of the child who drove down the street away from the park. He just kept on driving, eventually turning on to the onramp of the Bronx River Parkway!
Well, drivers on the street may not have thought anything of a boy in a toy car, but thank goodness freeway motorists did!
Police say they received several 911 calls about the boy — but a few good samaritans didn't stop there!
Three separate cars slowed enough to form a wall around the boy, making sure he couldn't come to harm. Eventually one was able to stop long enough to hop out of their car and swoop him up, ATV and all!
The boy was reunited with his family and taken to the hospital for observation, but thanks to the actions of a few brave, quick-thinking individuals, he was completely unharmed!
