While relaxing on a wall near a building being torn down, a man soon realised he was too close for comfort when it started falling towards him. A villager had a narrow escape when he was forced to flee a falling building after he sat too close while watching it being torn down.
A clip believed to have been filmed in China shows the lucky man realising at the last second that he was far too close for comfort. The video, which has more than two million views on social media sites, shows him perched on the edge of a broken wall while relaxing in a heap of rubble formed from previously demolished buildings.
As the villager and the person recording the footage watch the building’s first-floor support column being destroyed, he suddenly realises to his horror that the structure is collapsing towards him. The man springs to his feet and begins bolting backwards towards safety, clambering over rubble and debris in the process.
The building falls with a loud crash and kicks up a cloud of smoke, which covers the area he was sitting in just seconds before. The lucky man trips during his escape but fortunately manages to avoid being crushed or struck by debris, the video shows.
