One side of the sliding gate suddenly collapsed soon after the unnamed mother pulled to close it.
She turned back and walked with her son slowly without realising the gate was falling towards them.
It hit on the boot of a black car that parked in front of the gate and alerted the mother.
She looked back and saw the gate hit collapsed just inches away behind.
