Lucky Truck Driver Survives Being Electrocuted (Video)


This is the dramatic moment a driver survived after being electrocuted when steel bars loaded on the back of his truck touched overhead power cables. The trucker, Piya Wattana, was delivering the construction materials to a warehouse in Phuket, southern Thailand, when they snagged on the lines at a traffic light. He had his pet cat inside the cabin – which also survived. CCTV footage shows the driver suddenly realising his vehicle is stuck and tries to jump out of the cabin. However, as he leaves he is engulfed in a ball of sparks from the electric shock but miraculously survives and rolls away with minor burns.
