RUSSIAN (PIX11) – Shocking video coming out of Russia will make parents everywhere think twice when securing their infant in the back seat.

As dash cam video shows, a family’s Mitsubishi suddenly loses control on icy roads,  sending the vehicle swerving into a big rig.

An infant identified as Milan is tossed from the vehicle, lands on the pavement and nearly gets run over by the truck.

Although he survived, Baby Milan suffered several facial lacerations and was evaluated for head trauma.

What’s shocking about the incident: investigators say the infant was not properly secured and was apparently just laying down in the back seat.
