VIDEO: Man narrowly escapes death as pane of glass falls from building

September 23, 2015

This man can consider himself the luckiest man on Earth after a huge glass panel fell from knocking him to the ground but missing his head by millimetres before shattering into thousands of pieces.

The footage, released on Sunday, shows a man walking along the street in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia.

You can see clearly on the video how the sheet of glass, around two-metres long falls and narrowly misses his head. He gets up and walks in a daze before being called back by someone who has heard the window pane shatters.
