Cop Saves Boy from Getting Hit by Car--Or Does He?

(Video Link)

The boy and a police officer crossed the snow-filled street in Belarus. The cop saw that a car driving toward them was going too fast and wouldn't be able to stop in time. So he grabbed the boy by the handle on his backpack and yanked him back, twisted around at the same time so that he, rather than the child, would take the brunt of the impact.

Surprisingly, neither of them was seriously injuried. Dashcam footage shows the cop standing up, opening the passenger side door of the car, and having a few words with the driver.

This is how many people are interpreting the video. But as the Daily Mail points out, other internet commenters say that the cop actually pulled the boy toward danger, not away from it. If he had only left the child alone, he would have missed the car completely.

Did the cop save the child?

Yeah the cop was trying to pull him back in front of the car which had already stopped, but the driver went towards them instead of staying in their lane.
If for some unimaginable reason he was trying to hurt the kid the cop would of swung him in the direction of the car rather than taking the brunt himself

this is kinda dumb since, clearly the cop grabbed the boy when he saw the car speeding towards them, but the then the driver reacted and changed´s like coliding towards another person on the street when both are trying avoid on another
