An eight-year-old girl is lucky to be alive after she was hit by a getaway car being chased by police.
As two men tried to escape in a stolen vehicle from a Philadelphia police patrol car, they
careered onto the pavement outside Cassidy’s home in the city’s the Erie area.
CCTV shows pig-tailed Cassidy Wall thrown into the air and crashing down on her head as she was hit by the car as she played on her scooter outside her US home.
Another young child also makes a hasty retreat up the stairs to avoid being hit.
