Astonishing moment Britain's bravest mother pushes pram carrying her baby girl ... trends now
This is the moment Britain's bravest mother pushes her child's pram to safety - before she was mown down by a speeding drink driver and left for dead with a serious brain injury.
Becky Sharp, 31, was crossing the road with daughter Lorena in her stroller in the Redhill area of Bournemouth when scaffolder Dale Clark, 38, bounded along the road at 40mph in a 30mph zone in his Toyota RAV4 following a vodka binge.
The footage, exclusively published by MailOnline, shows the car travelling along the outside lane on Redhill Avenue on April 11 this year shortly before 9am before swerving across to the inside lane at the last second as Ms Sharp crosses the road.
She pushes the pram out of the way, and Lorena escaped without injury despite her pram overturning as it trundled to the edge of the road; but her mum spent eight weeks in a coma and has been in a rehabilitation unit in Poole since the crash.
Clark drove off after the incident, leaving Mrs Sharp for dead - and with life-altering injuries including brain trauma and multiple fractures that have left her needing to use a wheelchair and needing long-term medical care.

The video footage, taken from a local business further down Redhill Avenue, shows Clark speeding along the outside lane of the one-way street ahead of jumping lanes at the last second to avoid a right turn.
Prior to Clark switching over, Mrs Sharp had started to cross the road with Lorena - and as she realises the drink-addled driver has made a last-minute dart across the street her reflexes kick in.
Clark had been drinking that day and had 'girls and drugs on his mind' according to prosecutors as he wove his way across the road, using his phone as a sat nav in his lap after contacting drug dealers earlier in the day.
As Clark he realises what he's done, the brake lights on his Toyota light up and the whole car pitches forward - but by then, it's too late.
