A Three-year old girl made a very lucky escape after a bus span out of control and hit her in Laiyang City, Shandong Province.

The bus swerved out of the way of an oncoming car and straight into the path of the unnamed girl, who was riding her electric bike down the pavement at the time.

Rescue services arrived at the scene to find the little girl trapped under the bus with only her head and chest exposed. Attempts to lift the bus failed after the ground was too soft to support the use of a jack. Fire-fighters then spent eight minutes digging the girl out from underneath the vehicle.

The girl was subsequently sent to hospital, where doctors have reported that she has miraculously suffered no serious injuries.
