A man was nearly killed because of recklessness and the entire incident was caught on video. Footage surfaced online showing a man holding onto large metal plates on the back of a small truck.
The vehicle was moving and the wind force from the front forced the plates to fly back, nearly taking the man with them, Briefly.co.za gathered.
The video was shared on South Africa Live's Facebook on Tuesday and generated more than 730 000 views. South Africans were both amused and concerned by the footage, adding the man could have been killed.
