A video of a traffic cop and bus driver’s swift action saved the life of a toddler has gone viral on social media and netizens are praising them for their heroic action.
The video was shared by Awanish Sharan on Twitter on Sunday. It shows how the bus drivers and cop’s timely intervention help saved the life of a child who had fallen off an electric rickshaw.
In the now-viral video, a cop can be seen controlling the traffic when he suddenly spots a toddler falling off an electric rickshaw.
There was a bus approaching and he rushed to pick the child up. The toddler was accompanied by his mother, who hurriedly got down after he fell off the rickshaw.
The internet lauded the traffic cop’s bravery while many were miffed by the rickshaw driver. “Alertness of Police officials and quick reaction by bus driver should be appreciated. At the same time, the e-rick driver needs to be penalized for breaking the lane and cutting into the traffic. What if the bus was rear-ended and occupants of that vehicle injured?” a user wrote
