Baby survives being catapulted from car at 70mph

Six-week-old newborn was thrown from car but stayed in car seat


A six-week-old baby boy has survived after being catapulted from his dad’s car, still strapped into his car seat.


Jonathan Samuel was thrown out of the car traveling at 70 mph after it punctured a tyre and spun on the road six times.

Still strapped into his car seat, Jonathan was flung out of the car window as it crashed into the central reservation of the M6 near Wigan.

Dad Oliver, 31, said he jumped out of the car and searched for missing Jonathan, expecting the worst, but found the little boy unscathed, lying in the outside lane.

Jonathan was checked over by hospital staff who said he seemed, “fit and well, alert and happy”.


One lucky lad, eh?
