Incredible Moment Teen Survives Being Run Over By 20 Tonne Truck

Incredible Moment Teen Survives Being Run Over By 20 Tonne Truck

This teenage girl had an incredible escape after she was run over by a 20 ton skip lorry, and not only lived to tell the tale but also got up to shout at the driver.

The amazing footage shows how the lorry literally jumps up into the air as it rolls over 17-year-old Natasha Balova after bashing her off her bike and knocking her to the floor.

The footage was shot by the car behind being driven by 24-year-old Artem Droukov, in the Russian city of Zelenograd near the capital Moscow. He was so amazed at the teenager's escape, that he uploaded it onto the internet.

He said: "I was driving behind the skip lorry when I saw this teenager get knocked off her bike and then run over.

"I thought she would be crushed flat but instead the truck bounced into the air and after lying on the ground for a short while screaming, she got up and really gave the driver a mouthful. I couldn't believe it. She walked a bit unsteadily out of the side of the road and sat down and told him what she thought of him."

Passers-by thought that it must have been adrenaline that kept the girl conscious and were convinced she must have been suffering from broken bones, but after calling an ambulance and she had been taken to hospital doctors confirmed that other than bruising she was unhurt, and she was allowed to return home.

The bike however was crushed. Police are investigating the incident and say they are considering charges against the truck driver for negligence.
