The bollard crumbles from the power of the car and the vehicle is then steered over the edge of the bridge.

A driver's head sticks out of the window as he struggles to get one child out. He then stands on the hood while he throws his child to the bridge.
The locals who had gathered to help tried to catch his child, but missed centimeters when the child bounced off the side of the bridge and fell back into the water.
The child just falls out of outstretched hands and falls back into the water before the people on the bridge can catch it

One person jumps in and helps the other imprisoned family members to rescue, while a second throws a long red cloth in the water to pull them out.
Amid the chaos caused by yesterday's collision in the Niwari Vidhan Sabha constituency, the red truck is out of sight.
The family was rescued and sent to the hospital where they undergo treatment.
