This is the heart-stopping moment a pickup truck nearly missed a toddler who suddenly ran across a highway in Thailand.

The driver slammed the breaks immediately to stop before he could hit the boy in Phang Nga province on January 17.

The boy’s panicked mother pulled the boy away from the road and gave his bottom a smack to stop him from doing it again.

Delivery truck driver Nopparat Tongtaee said: ‘Parents should never let their toddler out of their sight. Anything could happen in a small amount of time.’
