A video of an unattended baby crawling across a major highway in north-central Vietnam was quick to make its round on social media earlier this week.
Nguyen Trong Hai was driving on a rural portion of National Route 7 through Nghe An Province when he spotted a one-year-old crawling in the middle of the road.
Hai immediately stopped his vehicle, picked up the child, and located the parents who were taking a nap in their nearby house.
The driver published dash cam footage of the incident on his social media account on Tuesday, garnering much praise from viewers.

Several cases of unminded children have been reported in Vietnam recently, one of them ending in death.
A three-year-old child in Go Vap District, Ho Chi Minh City, attempted to step over the low horizontal bar across the window of its room on the 11th story of a condominium in mid-March.
Two men from an adjacent room rushed over as the toddler continued to climb through the window before a person in the baby’s room carried him inside.
In another event the same month, a baby creeping to the median barrier on National Route 18 running through Cam Pha, a city in Quang Ninh Province, was filmed by a vehicle dash cam.
Luckily, a driver halted his car before a tragic situation could occur.
In early March, an unattendend three-year-old boy in the northern Vietnamese province of Nam Dinh took the elevator to the 21st floor of a kindergarten building and walked down the stairs to the 20th floor, where he climbed through the window, fell to the sixth floor, and died.
