There are some things you can do on video games that you can’t do in real life. Obviously. One of these things is falling off a bike and getting run over by a fast moving truck. As you see the imminence of the crash, you wince a bit, your character swears and gives the guy the finger, then you carry on on your merry way.
In real life, we sadly don’t have the means to input a cheat code and be okay on the other side. So what happens to this guy must have been a miracle. Watch on…
The motorbike begins to tank slap. It’s starting to look nasty as the bike edges closer to a passing truck, but notice the tiny gap between the wheels? That’s his exit. Now he’s either an extremely lucky man or he has an Xbox controller hidden under his jacket because he slips between the wheels of the behemoth and comes out the other side with only some scratches and some torn trousers.
He says this on the accident:
“I’m very lucky to be alive. I slid through a tiny gap between the trucks rear tires and the trailer stand. If was going any slower or faster, I wouldn’t have been so fortunate. The only injuries I got was a very small amount of road rash on my knee and hip.. Nothing broken. I’m very blessed.”
It’s also lovely to see how many people reacted and tried to help him. I’m sure he felt extremely grateful for that. Not everyone can look death in the face and come out the other end.
