Not today, death. A boy narrowly escaped severe or even fatal injuries in a traffic accident near Rivervale Plaza when he zoomed across a junction when the lights weren’t in his favor.

A dash cam uploaded on the Roads.SG Facebook page showed that the terrifying incident took place last Friday at 6:20pm at the intersection of Punggol Road and Compassvale Drive. The lights had turned green for vehicles heading in the direction of Sengkang East way, but drivers had to pump their brakes when a toddler dashed across the road on his kick scooter without a care in the world.

The boy managed to cross the first half of the road unscathed, but it was in the second section that he wasn’t so lucky. Or perhaps the boy is fortunate — if he had been scooting a wee bit quicker he could have been knocked down at full force by a white car instead of simply being grazed by its side.

Having escaped demise, the boy got up from the ground, confused by what just happened. A cyclist who witnessed the accident can be seen parking her bicycle at a traffic light and presumably got the boy out of the busy road soon after.

According to an individual who was apparently a witness at the scene claimed that the boy’s parents were at home when the accident happened. Netizens were quick to direct their anger at his parents for their alleged neglect.
