One traffic police officer at the scene spotted the squalling baby lying five meters away from the body of his mum.
He and his fellow officers rescued the fragile newborn, very much in awe of the miracle and the greatness of life.
A hospital spokesman said the baby, who weighs 9lb 2oz (4.2kg), is in a stable condition, although he is suffering many injuries to his head and body as well as lung contusion, which can be life-threatening.
But, if he survives, he'll enjoy a long life.
New projections from the Office for National Statistics show that between 1/3 and 2/3 of the current generation of babies will live for at least a century.
Meanwhile members of the baby boomer generation, who are retiring at this moment, can look forward to living 50% longer than their parents’ generation. Surviving until the age of 90 will be standard for both sexes. Men born just after the end of the Second World War will gain an extra seven years in retirement, in comparison with those who retired 30 years ago. Women have gained almost six years extra life expectancy. The decline of heavy industry and major changes in lifestyles, which includes a drop in smoking, has helped narrow the gender gap.
So what sort of future lies ahead for the little accident survivor? Let's hope a member of his family offers the love and support he lost from his parents.
