A family’s car was accidentally driven into a river near a pier in China and, as the vehicle was sinking, a father desperate to save a baby, tossed it through the air, over a rocky shoreline to a stranger who caught and saved the infant.

The UK’s Mirror reported that, “The panicked dad, who had been standing on the car bonnet, fell forward with the force of the throw and ended up in the water himself.” But he and other family members were saved when workers on the pier threw them life preservers. No was one was seriously hurt in the incident, which happened neaar Changde City, where the family had been visiting relatives for Chinese New Year celebrations.

Authorities later towed the car from the river.
