Dashboard camera footage shows a shocking near miss for a San Antonio, Texas bus driver.

It was just after midnight last May when driver Mike Hubbard spotted something in the street ahead of him.

Hubbard stopped just in time to miss running over that something: a baby clad only in a diaper sitting in the middle of the street.

He quickly got off the bus and scooped up the child.

Moments later a man runs from a nearby house and takes the child, all without saying a word.

The baby was Destiny Flores.

She's now 2-years-old and doing fine, but her mother, 25-year-old Catherine Gonzalez is still fighting to keep Destiny and her two sisters.

Gonzalez says she has no idea how Destiny opened the door of their home and got out that night.

Texas Child Protective Services will determine if the girls will be allowed to remain in the home within the next few weeks.
