South Africans are aware of 'train surfing' but this time it happened on a bus in KwaZulu-Natal. One kid is seen in a video riding his bicycle while holding onto a bus and he seems to enjoy the ride.
However, the bus hits a pothole and the boy loses his grip and bails. The clip is going viral and attracting hilarious reactions.
According to SA Long Distance Truckers, the incident happened in KwaMashu, one of the biggest townships outside of Durban. They captioned the video:
“The dangers of surfing on the back of buses and trucks... If you laugh, you go to hell.”

“How on earth lol”: Saffas amazed by video of a truck moving forward after an accident
In a recent and similar post, Briefly News reported that a video of a truck that capsized but continues to move is causing a stir on social media.
This is seen in a video clip posted by @GigaBoas on Twitter. The short clip shows the big vehicle turning what looks like a sharp curve but the driver loses control of his vehicle and it capsizes.
However, many social media users are amazed at the fact that the engine or chassis keeps running and moving forward, leaving the top part lying on the road.
The troubled driver is seen chasing behind the chassis and there’s music playing in the background, a song similar to one of a tune performed by Celine Dion, My Heart Life Will Go On.
