An 18-year-old man from Berlin is lucky to be alive after he slipped while trying to catch a bus.

According to reports, the young man is lucky to have only suffered scrapes, bruises and an arm injury after being pinned under the rear wheel of the bus. The man was running to catch the bus as it was pulling away.  He slipped and ended up underneath the bus pinned by the rear wheel.

The driver of the bus immediately stopped the bus from moving once they realized what happened.  Then with the help of 40 people, the bus was pushed up and the young man was pulled out from underneath the tire.

You can see a portion of the heroic rescue in the video below.


The injured man was taken to a hospital, where he underwent surgery. No official word on how he is doing now, but assumed he is recovering. Police were investigating how he ended up under the bus but have praised the people who pitched in as “heroes” to help free the young man from a very scary situation.
