What an absolute hero. Sounds as though she saved the child. I pray knew Jesus.

That almost happened to me once. My dumb van started rolling backwards - nobody in it and i opened the door to try and get it and step on the brake but i saw the door was about to put slammed shut by the garage door so i got out just in the knick of time. So scary and I can't believe I go out on time. The mirror ended up catching on the garage door frame and stopped the van. That poor woman and that poor family. I pray for them.

Very sad. Very admirable of this woman to make such a valiant effort to save the boy.

Very sincere condolences to the family. A true tragedy. There are some accidents that are the result of obvious negligence. This one looks like a freak accident. Very sorry to read this story.

Too bad. It is almost impossible to get in a backward rolling vehicle because U usually are on the wrong side of the door. all the time you are trying to get around the door, the van is going faster, etc, etc. Probably better off just laying down behind vehicle and it will stop without hurting you very much.
