Watch this policeman cheat death by surviving a spectacularly dangerous bike crash


Brace yourselves, you lot, this is gonna smart. A video has surfaced of a policeman careening down a flight of stairs on his bike, in what can only be possibly described as one of the most painfully extreme videos in existence.

The terrifying crash occurred during a demonstration in front of a class of horrified children, who were being told how to safely descend a flight of stairs on their bike.

You’re welcome.
