Watch A Man Cheat Death As His Truck Plummets Off A Cliff

Jumping out of a moving vehicle just before it plummets off a cliff is standard stuff for action movies and James Dean impressionists, but actually seeing it happen in real life is breathtaking. A tow-truck driver in Norway did just that, though, when the heavy truck he was towing slipped off the icy road.

The driver of the tow-truck escaped at the last moment, but the other driver was trapped in his cab for the fall. Miraculously, he survived with just a few broken bones, but looking at the truck tumble down the embankment, it’s impossible to imagine how. [BBC]
