An accident video in which a biker has a close shave with death after he skids off his bike and comes under a bus has been going viral on social media.
The video of the incident which reportedly took place in Bengaluru recently was shared by Dr. BR Ravikanthe Gowda, Joint Commissioner of Police, Traffic Bengaluru City on Twitter with the caption, “Good quality ISI MARK helmet saves life (sic).”
In the video, the biker is seen applying brakes as the bus appears from one side. As the bike screeches to a halt it skids the man gets thrown off the bike and comes under the bus. The man’s head was about to be run over by the wheels of the bus but his skull was not crushed because of the bus driver’s instinct to halt the bus immediately and also because of the good-quality helmet worn by the biker which lessened the impact of the tires on his head.
The youth has been identified as 19-year-old Alex Silva Peres.
Several people have reacted to the video with one user commenting “Omg very scary, but yes good helmet can save ur life…Pl wear swat belt or Helmet while driving (sic).”
