The child tried to hold on but crumpled to the ground, where she laid blocking traffic.

Dashcam video captured the moment a little girl fell from the back of a moving church bus. Ryan Ciampoli was driving behind the vehicle when its rear door swung open with a 4-year-old clinging to the handle. The child tried to hold on but crumpled to the ground, where she laid blocking traffic. Ciampoli slammed to a stop and ran to the child, his training as an EMT immediately kicking in. He bent over her and was thankful to see she was moving.

It is not clear if the door was already unlocked or if she opened it when she fell out.

Ciampoli slammed to a stop and ran to the child, his training as an EMT immediately kicking in.

Ciampoli  said: She was unconscious at first but woke up as he walked towards her. Paramedics arrived at the scene five minutes after the accident and took her to the hospital.

'The shock kicked in her little body and she started kicking and screaming. Stuff like that is really heartbreaking.'

He said the little girl started begging for her mother once she gained consciousness.

Amazingly, she only suffered a broken jaw and will need surgery but is expected to fully recover.

Ciampoli said: 'It can happen anywhere anytime, never would you think driving down the road, that something like that would happen.'

It is not clear if the door was already unlocked or if she opened it when she fell out.
