The people in the car whose dashcam caught the toddler's fall were able to get the 2-year-old to safety. Another driver chased after the grandfather, Yang Defu. He was finally able to get Yang's attention at a red light.
The grandfather told state-owned CCTV that his van's tailgate lock was damaged days earlier in a rear-end collision.
