HOLLYWOOD (CBSMiami) – A three-year-old girl remains in the hospital after a terrifying ride on her father’s three-wheeled motorbike.

It happened Wednesday night, around 5:30 p.m., at Northeast 163rd Street and 6th Avenue.

According to police, a 35-year-old man pulled up to his home on the vehicle and went inside.

Someone heard the engine start and when the man looked out the window, he says he saw his motorbike heading west and his three-year-old daughter driving it.

The man ran outside and tried to get onto the bike, but ended up being dragged down the street.

Surveillance video shows the man falling off moments before the motorbike crossed two lanes of traffic and crashed into a wall at a gas station.

Andres Gomez was working inside at the time of the crash.

“I listened to a loud noise,” Gomez said. “[The] father was trying to wake her up.”

The man rushed to his daughter, who was airlifted to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital with serious injuries.

“It’s hard to see,” Gomez said. “I called 911, a nurse gave aid, that’s it.”

In the video, a woman in a nurses uniform is seen taking the child and doing what she can until paramedics arrive.
