A recent video polarised opinion, but had everyone on the edge of their seats.

The video featured a man who put his life on the line by driving downhill in a home-made cart.

Based on the footage, Briefly.co.za gathered that he had a child accompanying him in his little wagon.

The cart can be seen travelling down the hill rapidly, but then a motorist approaches the intersection around the same time.

Somehow, the motorist misses the cart by the narrowest of margins and the daredevils lived to see another day.

South Africa Live shared the video via Facebook and Briefly.co.za noted that it's already been viewed 96 000 times.

Many South Africans had their hearts in their mouths while watching the video and were livid that all parties were so reckless.

Thabiso Tsaoana said,

"What makes it worse is that there's a child on that thing."

Lcbar Knox added,

"He must have quickly built a toilet and an intensive care unit in that cart... I won’t recover from that."

Xolani Stemela wasn't convinced about how it played out:

"This thing is staged. Driver wont cross the main road with that speed."

Mario Firmino said,

"It's not about playing. You supposed to have a team out on the look out for you as you perform this stupid stunt."
