BOSTON (WTHR) – A police officer in Boston ran over a little girl and it was all caught on camera.

WARNING: The video is disturbing. Viewer discretion is advised.

The police cruiser was pulling away when the child stepped in front of it.

The girl's mother ran after the officer and jumped on him after he stopped.

Amazingly, the little girl's most serious injury is a broken collarbone.

It's not clear if the officer will face any disciplinary action.
