Walking past a mother with two boys, one in a buggy and one disobedient young child that has a bouncy ball which he accidentally knocks into the road. The young boy, Sam, runs into road to grab his ball but his mum notices a lorry and screams for him to leave the ball. Andy hears the mother screaming and spots the lorry driving at some speed towards the child.
