VIDEO: Quick-Reaction Guy Escapes Death As Piece Of Cladding Falls From Above

A lucky guy from Vitebsk in Belarus avoided hard consequences from a falling object thanks to quick reaction. The accident was captured by a CTTV camera.

Street is a dangerous place, but how often do you really need to watch out and escape death?

The incident took place near a shopping mall in Vitebsk on 18 September. People were walking past the building when a large slab came falling from above.

The young man managed to escape the place of the fall by a few centimetres.

Luckily he raised his eyes a second before and saw it coming.

Following the scene other passers-by either froze in fear, or began to move away from the building.

The 26-year-old hero of the thriller is named Alexey and works in the building.

He didn’t immediately realize what happened.

“I turned around, saw pieces of cladding on the ground, laughed and continued my way,” he told TUT.BY.

26-year-old Alexey is married and has a small child

“I understood it only when watched the video with security later. Everyone was shocked.”

He added it was a very windy day and with all the noise outside Alexey didn’t hear anything: “I still don’t know how I managed to react and jump off.” 

He also didn’t expect it would make his famous – the video went viral when Alexey posted in online.
