A 4-year-old boy who was ejected from a car seat remains uninjured.
A car crash on the 5 Freeway in Anaheim sent the boy flying from his car while attached to his car seat Wednesday night. ABC News reports that the driver lost control of the car and crashed into a wall by Magnolia Avenue. The boy was lucky enough to land in some nearby plants that were next to the freeway.
For safety precautions, the boy was taken to UC Irvine Medical Center, but had no major injuries.
According to News 10, a 4-year-old girl experienced a similar situation in December when her 25-year-old cousin, Xavier Robinson, was rear ended on the freeway and was sent flying from her vehicle. Her safety seat caught onto a nearby fence and she only suffered minor scratches.
“Car seats saves lives and if you have a kid, strap it up,” Robinson said.
Kids Health recommends children remain in a safety seat until they are about 8 years old.
