A hair-raising video has emerged of a motorcyclist escaping grievous injury or even death by a fraction of a second in Malaysia. In the 20-second video, he is seen losing his balance while riding down a highway in the rain, and falling off his bike. He manages to leap aside to avoid being run over by a truck.
The truck driver screeches to a halt after running over a part of the motorcycle. Both escaped without injuries.
The video, captured by an onlooker sitting inside a car parked beside the road, has taken the Internet by storm.
