A motorcyclist miraculously survived after he crashed into a dump truck on Saturday and was immediately engulfed in flames.
Surveillance footage of the collision, which unfolded in China, shows the man’s motorcycle hitting the truck’s fuel tank, with an uncontrollable fire subsequently breaking out, according to Channel News Asia.
“The door on my side could not open as the fire was darting over,” the truck driver, identified as Yang Juyong, told the outlet. “I opened the door on the passenger side and jumped out. Then I rushed to the injured man and rescued him.”
Video of the incident shows the motorcyclist stopping, dropping and rolling around on the ground after crash, as good samaritans rushed over to help pat down the rest of the flames covering his body, Fox News reported.
