What Was Captured On This Dash Cam Shows Why Properly Securing Car Seats Is Crucial

JUNE 29, 2017  —  By Corinne S.

On June 21, Claudia Alanis was driving back to work from a lunch break when she witnessed a truly horrifying sight.

As she was stopped at an intersection in Laredo, Texas, she saw a one-year-old boy falling out of a moving vehicle and hitting the pavement -- and her dash cam recorded the whole thing.

As the SUV turned right, the rear left door opened, ejecting the little boy along with his car seat.

Fortunately, the driver behind them stopped as soon as the child fell out. "(The baby) just ran into the stranger's arms," Alanis said. "The woman on the passenger's side, [who] I believe is the mom, got out of the vehicle crying and ran toward the baby."

The little boy ended up only being treated for scrapes on the scene, but he could have very easily been killed that day as evidenced by the dash cam footage below. A 26-year-old woman named Jocelyn Nicole Hernandez was cited for having an unrestrained child younger than four in the car.
