HARRISON, ARKANSAS – A 4-year-old child tumbled out of the back of a moving church bus after unlatching the door and continued barrelling down the road as the dash came on the vehicle behind it caught the entire horrifying incident.
The young girl was miraculously saved Wednesday when a certified EMT and off-duty volunteer firefighter was driving behind the bus when the incident occurred.
“I saw it happening and it blew my mind. It was kind of like I wasn’t seeing what I was seeing. It looked like it was a movie,” Ryan Ciampoli recalled.
Ciampoli captured on his dash camera the moment the little girl swung open the door and fell to the pavement face-first. The bus driver, apparently unaware the child fell out, continued driving down highway 65 in Harrison, Arkansas.

Immediately, the volunteer firefighter stopped his vehicle and ran to the girl’s rescue. He cradled the little girl in his arms, who he said was initially unconscious, but she quickly woke up.
ABC 11 reports that she broke her jaw and will need to undergo reconstructive surgery, though she is expected to make a full recovery.
The church claims to have taken the bus out of commission, but the reason for why the door flung open still remains a mystery.
