A NORWEGIAN trucker has released dash-cam footage of a child escaping death after running out into the middle of a busy road.
The video (click on main image to view) shows the child getting off a school bus then running behind it straight into the path of a lorry travelling at speed.
Tor Bjørn Kyrkjebø, whose dash-cam recorded the incident, sounded his horn but the boy was already in front of the other vehicle. The other driver then slammed on his brakes, managing to avoid hitting the boy by inches.
Tor said: “I saw what was about to happen, but there was little I could do. I saw over the roof of the bus the truck was heading at it at a great speed. I blinked my lights and horn to alert the traffic and young people.”
