— -- A young boy survived a brush with death after being run over by an out-of-control car in Brooklyn, New York Monday afternoon.

Stunning surveillance video shows the boy, identified as Oscar Chen by ABC News Station WABC-TV in New York, walking down the street in Sunset Park with his stuffed animal when a car jumped the curb, knocked a small tree onto him, then ran him over.

His grandmother was a few feet away at the time, the boy's mother, Cindy Chen, told WABC-TV.

"My mom try to pick up my son... but cannot because he's under the car," Chen told WABC-TV.

The boy appears to end up between the tires, according to WABC-TV. He only suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital, WABC-TV reported.

When Oscar was released from the hospital Monday night, he was "not talking" and "nervous," Chen said. But today the boy is doing "much better," his mother told WABC-TV.

The driver had not been charged, according to WABC-TV.
