A crowd of bystanders lifted a car off a mother and her baby who were trapped underneath when the vehicle crashed into them as they walked past a cafe in the Australian city of Newcastle on Friday.
Witnesses said the car reversed out of a parking space into the cafe, hitting a parked vehicle before running down the woman who was carrying her child, the broadcaster ABC reported.
According to the witness they called for a jack but then we realized that it would be quicker and a lot faster that if they all lifted up the vehicle, and then they got about 15 people in the community to lift up the vehicle and then one brave man hopped underneath and pulled her out.
The baby had scratches all over its head and there was a fair bit of blood all over its head, and the mother was bruised and scratched all over," he said.
Both the mother and baby have been taken to hospital where it was confirmed the woman has broken bones while the baby will be examined for possible head injuries.
The driver, aged in his 70s, was taken away by police to be tested for alcohol and an investigation is under way.
