It's a terrifying dashcam clip that has been shared online all over the world.
Chad Mock was driving behind a car in Mankato Monday when suddenly a toddler falls out of the back of the vehicle as it was winding past a corner, leaving the little girl in the middle of the street still strapped into her car seat.
Mock stopped to help and thankfully the toddler wasn't hurt.
"I'm thankful that the child was ok," Mock said.
Mock's dashcam on his pickup captured the entire incident on video. He posted the video on Facebook and it went viral. Mock has been contacted by news outlets around the world.
"If it didn't happen in front of me, I wouldn't have believed it," Mock said
Mankato Police say the mother, whose name isn't being released, later returned to the scene once she realized the child was missing.
The Blue Earth County Attorney tells us he should make a decision on whether to file child endangerment charges against the mother by next week.
