Video: Amazing footage as man narrowly avoids being crushed by falling crane

Bloody hell that was close!

A Russian man is counting his lucky stars this week as he narrowly avoided being crushed by a falling crane.

According to the Metro, the man was walking down a street in Russia when a crane collapsed, right onto the spot where he had been standing just seconds earlier. The incredible action was caught on camera by the dashcam of a passing bus and it captured the moment the man in question briefly stopped walking and then started again, just as the crane came crashing down.

Keep an eye on the guy in the red t-shirt on the right hand side of the video.
