Somehow he managed to start the car up, driving it forward and knocking down the pregnant woman
A pregnant woman and her child were run over by a six-year-old boy who started up an electric car on display in a shopping centre.
The exhibition in the Chinese capital Beijing featured two brand-new Teslas which were on display to the public.
The sales team were explaining some of the finer points of the car when the six-year-old opened the door of the white Tesla and climbed inside, apparently planning to pretend to drive it.
But somehow he managed to start the car up, driving it forward and knocking down the pregnant woman and the child that she had inside a pram.
Neither mother or baby were harmed but still called police to complain about the incident.
Now the police are looking at why the cars, which were open for the public to sit in, had not been locked so that they could not be driven.
Authorities said no action was pending against a six-year-old boy, only against the organisers of the exhibit and the shopping centre management for not taking more care.
Neither the management or the car showroom organisers commented on the bizarre mishap.
