Video: Cyclist in China has very lucky escape after lorry runs him over

Rider ends up underneath articulated lorry - and comes out unscathed the other side

A cyclist in China had an incredibly lucky escape when he was run over by a truck in Ningbo, a coastal city just south of Shanghai.

Footage from CCTV cameras shows the cyclist riding up the inside of the lorry as it turns right, the driver evidently unaware of his presence.

Despite being run over by the truck, the cyclist gets up afterwards, apparently unscathed.

It's not the first video we've reported on this year showing a cyclist narrowly avoiding serious injury in a collision with a lorry.

In July, footage emerged of Russian teenager Natasha Bulova escaping with nothing more than bruises after being rin over by a skip lorry near Moscow.
