Dramatic escape of drunk man lying in road nearly hit by bus - VIDEO
THIS is the moment a bus driver's quick thinking saved a man's life.
A dramatic video released today shows how a bus driver had to slam on the brakes as a man lay prone in the middle of the road in the early hours of the morning.
Sgt Dave Sanderson from the Isle of Wight Roads Policing Unit said: "The video shows the extraordinary danger the man put himself in.
“More significantly the danger he put everyone else in. Imagine the devastating impact this incident could have had on others if it were not for the amazing reactions of the bus driver."
The footage was taken from a Southern Vectis bus on the Isle of Wight, which was travelling down Halletts Shute near Yarmouth.
