Russia: A video shows a man whose life was saved by miracle
The man is seen crossing a road when the bus ploughs into the back of a stationary car waiting at the traffic lights.
The pedestrian sprints past the car as it is shoved towards him, and then accelerates as the bus comes hurtling past as well. He makes it past with inches to spare.
Commendably, he keeps a firm grip on his briefcase throughout.
According to Russian news outlet UralInform.ru, the Number 67 bus had been parked on a hill when its brakes failed.
The vehicle, weighing several tons, rolled downhill for five blocks, smashing 20 cars aside on its way.
At least four people are reported to have been hurt in the incident, although officials warn that this number may rise.
The city of Perm lies towards the west of Russia, in the European region to the west of the Ural mountains.
