Man Hit By Falling Windowpane In Saudi Arabia Miraculously Survives

A man has miraculously survived after a falling pane of glass crashed down upon him whilst he was walking down a pavement in Saudi Arabia.

The incident, captured on CCTV, saw the man strolling down the street, with his head down, unbeknown to the dramatic moments ahead of him.

Seconds later a window pane estimated at around seven feet long can be seen launching through the sky, hovering above the unnamed man's head.

The piece of glass crashed down on the man's shoulder

As the glass plummeted toward him, it shattered across his shoulder, the impact causing him to fall to the floor.

Incredibly, after the dramatic accident he gets up and brushes himself off, picking up his clothes and walks away apparently unscathed.

It's possible that the falling glass could have been fatal had the man been positioned just slightly differently.


It's not known why the pane of glass could have fallen from the building, one thing that can probably be taken for granted is that he will probably walk with his head up the future.
