A one-year-old toddler had a miraculous escape, as she accidentally fell off a moving jeep on a road inside a dense in Idduki district of Kerala and crawled to a nearby check-post in Rajamala, police said on Monday.

The girl child, sitting on her mother's lap, fell off the vehicle on Sunday night after her parents, exhausted by the journey, had dozed off. They had travelled several kilometres when they realised that the child was missing, officials said.

Wildlife officials at the check-post heard the child's cries and found her on a forest path which is often used by wild animals, including elephants, they said.

The baby suffered minor injuries to her face and forehead due to the fall. She was taken to a nearby hospital, where first-aid was administered, and the police were informed, the officials said.

CCTV visuals of the check-post which showed the baby falling off the jeep and crawling to safety, have now gone viral on social media.

The child and her parents, natives of nearby Kambalikkandam, were returning home after a visit to the Palani temple in Tamil Nadu, Santhosh K S, Sub-Inspector, Munnar, said.

"The parents came to know about the child falling off after passing several kilometres and rushed to the Vellathuval police station and informed them. By that time, we had already passed on the message about the child to all nearby police stations," he told PTI.

After completing the necessary formalities, the child was handed over to the parents at around 1.30 am on Monday, he added.
