Zhejiang Province, China – A mother in China is being praised for her quick actions that helped save her husband and child from a truck accident.

Police say the family stopped on the side a busy Chinese interstate to tell the truck driver his truck was tilting over. Just as the mom closes the door, the truck falls over onto its side.

The woman can be seen on surveillance video moving her family out of the way quickly. The truck narrowly misses falling on them.

Police charged the truck driver. They say the load of trash he was carrying was too heavy.
