This lucky trucker walked away from the astonishing wreckage of his cab after it was flattened by two HGV lorries in a massive motorway pile up in eastern China.
First driver Le Weng slammed into the rear of one truck, then another rear ended his own lorry so hard his cab was crushed until it was only two feet thick.
Firefighters - who say the 60 car shunt in Yancheng, Jiangsu province was caused by heavy fog - took more than three hours to cut him lose from the wreckage.
"When I saw a foot dangling down from the cab I thought it must be a body and then someone said 'Hello.'
"Amazingly he had hardly a scratch on him," said one rescuer.
Police say 11 people died and another 24 were injured in a series of crashes along the fog-bound motorway.
One motorist Hin Zhu said: "It was terrifying. You couldn't see anything because of the fog but all around you there were the sounds of crashes and people screaming in pain."
