Gilford's boy almost hit by speeding while getting on the school bus

Filming shows a yellow school bus that stops at the stop on the other side of the road and we see the two children getting ready to cross

The images left by the heart show the moment when a seven-year-old boy is hit by a car traveling at high speed while crossing the street to board a school bus.

The surveillance recording was taken outside the home of David Cota-Robles, the boy's father, in Gilford, New Hampshire last week.

It shows two young people walking along the driveway with school backpacks accompanied by David's wife, Lindsay.

A yellow school bus stops at the stop on the other side of the road and we watch the two children prepare to cross.

The child on the left is ahead, but in a matter of seconds, a car that is passing at full speed flies by his side, seeming to be distracted and missing him by inches.

The video was posted on Facebook by Mr. Cota-Robles as a warning to parents about the "dangers of careless and distracted drivers."

He wrote below the post: "Hello, I was torn the last few days for posting this or not … the school is back in session and the safety of the school bus should be one of our number one priorities.

& # 39; Please share this and let others know the dangers of careless or distracted drivers. My son was seriously injured when this driver did not stop to turn on the lights of the buses. Thanks. & # 39;

The images have now gone viral with hundreds of users commenting on the threat of speeding on the roads, especially when children travel to and from school.

A resident in the area wrote: & # 39; My ex-husband is a bus driver. This is one of your biggest concerns. Several of their stops are on Loudon Rd and drivers frequently pass by their bus in both directions. Last year, after reporting this, the Concord police began to hang out there during this time. Maybe they need a reminder.

Another said: "How a driver does not see a big yellow bus on the road and DOES NOT see a stop sign on it! I think all school buses must have a camera installed that can get the license plate number of any car that does not Take into account the bus and the stop sign Once the plates are obtained, the driver is charged and loses 4 points on his license. "

Other users observed that the red stop sign had not left the side of the bus so that the drivers know that the children are crossing.

Other comments seemed to criticize the mother who was taking them to the bus.

User Anna Lee wrote: "How did that mom stay so calm when that car came within inches of her children?"

Another said: "Seriously, she turns around and just looks at the car, come in! Obviously, the car should have stopped, but ma'am, she did not do her job as a mother.
