WATCH: Boy gets run over by car, but then …

HONG KONG -- A 6-year-old boy in China miraculously survived being run over by an SUV.

The boy was playing with toys near his home when a red SUV drove over him. Immediately after, he stands to his feet and walks.

CCTV reports the boy was taken to the hospital to be checked out. He only had some scratches on his face and legs. The driver told police he didn't notice the child.

The case is under investigation. Authorities credit the boy's survival to a few reasons, including his small size and his placement between two wheels of the SUV.
