Man Narrowly Cheats Death By Falling Crane

final.jpg

Well that’s that cleared up then – Death is definitely on his holidays.

Just hours after we brought you news of a Czech man caught on camera cheating death by a matter of inches as a flying rock went past his head, comes Final Destination 2: The Crane.

Yes, in the clip below, this time in Russia, that's what meets another regular guy getting on with life until it’s almost taken from him in the most freakish manner possible - the crane hurtling down onto the footpath behind him, and helpfully all captured on camera by a passing bus.

We don't know what's scarier, that this lucky chap was one footstep from certain doom, or the lapse health and safety regulations of Eastern European construction yards.

Either way, with all this near-peril, we’re never walking anywhere again.
