Daijiworld Media Network - Thiruvananthapuram (SP) 

Thiruvananthapuram, Sep 10:  A one-year-old girl baby, that was sitting on the lap of her mother, in a moving jeep, fell off to the road located amid thick forest at Rajamala in Idukki district, Kerala. The baby, which had suffered injuries in the fall which occurred on Sunday night, crawled to a check post located nearby. 

It is said that the parents of the girl, who were returning after attending a religious ceremony, were vert tired and were fast asleep inside the jeep. They did not realize that the baby had slipped off the jeep till the jeep travelled a few kilometers farther from that spot. The parents of the child were from Kamalikkandam village which is located some distance away from Rajamala forest check post. 

The forest officials at the check post were surprised to hear the child's cries at the odd hours. The child had reached a path inside the forest that is frequented by wild animals including elephants when the forest officials located it, it is learnt. The baby, with some injuries on face and forehead which were caused by the fall, was taken to a nearby hospital where first aid was administered. The officials then informed the police.


CCTV footage of the check post which shows the baby falling from the jeep and then slowly making her way to near the check post has become viral in social media.

In the meanwhile, the check post staff had conveyed information about finding the child, to all police stations. The parents were later united with the baby, it is learnt.

    First of all we must or parents should thank God for not getting injured this baby.I too cant understand if parents dint notice of child slipping away,atleast driver should have noticed ,or certainly heard something is falling away ?Or he was driving with closed eyes and ears?Whowas the driver?own relative,or father?It cant be possible a child slipping down the jeep gone unnoticed.why this child falling down that too a girl this time from jeep,other one girl from a RIksha?A case is worth to show the parents their responsibilities towards children during their travel in a vehicle.not simply let it crawl about.with a seat belt make them to sit.or bring a law children should be seated down with seat belt specially for children.

    Parent should be punished for negligence. God is great. He saved the baby. What the hell driver was doing? Is he also sleeping and driving.

    It's true in hectic journey people fall asleep soon automatically when wind is blowing cooly. Here also what happened with this woman but do not know why kept window fully open when small child is in lap. When she felt of sleepy should have closed window screen as a precautionary. Most of mothers always seen never ever sleep a bit when childrens are around. She love them the most and take much care. Once we grown-up comes to aware mother's sacrifical nature what she done for us. Here looks like some divine power of that region saved a baby child. Something we do not know what associated to baby with that place. Otherwise like this less chance in this matter. One more video seen where in baby crawling alone in an highway where all vehicles running subsequently. It's happened in Vietnam looks like.

    Devdas... In clarification with the above.... Windows are placed at the shoulder level of any four wheelers right?? ...if child is on the lap means.. It's at the door level.. If the child jumps out of the window also.. It can not do so easily...child's movements definitely will wake up it's mother ...... Or child will cry... Or one who drives the jeep also will surely come to know (in that jeep only three of them were there) . If the child opens the door also child's father will definitely come to know for sure. Point to be noted that both were feeling sleepy how he drove the vehicle without dashing anywhere.. Or in that sleep many stop the vehicles and rest for one hour.. Very very strange and heart breaking news... Poor child got saved because of the reasons mentioned by you in your comment.
