The 16-month-old son of a Georgia jewelery store owner narrowly escaped death when a car plowed into the Savannah business over the weekend, smashing two showcases and injuring the father.
A surveillance video from Harkleroad Diamonds and Fine Jewelery on Abercorn Street shows the owner's son, Gray Harkleroad, standing at the front of the store just moments before a car smashed through the window, wrecking everything in sight.
Authorities said the toddler was thrown three feet in the air and landed safely away from the broken glass and debris.
The boy's father, Marion Harkleroad, said he watched helplessly from the rear of the store as his son buckled backwards and became airborne, ABC's Good Morning America reported.
Gray's older brother, 21-year-old Caleb, who was working at the store at the time, rushed to his brother's aid and scooped him up before he could cut himself.
