A mother and child experienced a close call when a car crashed right into a Methuen, Massachusetts storefront Sunday.

The two were inside Piro's Bakery when the vehicle came flying into the building.

It knocked over a display case, which knocked down the little boy.

"It was unbelievable, it felt like a movie," said Amanda LaFlamme.

Surveillance video shows how in just a matter of seconds, she pushed the display case off her son and picked him up out of the rubble.

"Everybody asked me 'What did you do?' and I said 'I don't know, I just went and picked him up'," she added, "that's the mother instinct."

No one was injured in the crash.
