This cabbie's fare in western China had a lucky break - after climbing out of the taxi just seconds before its rear seat was crushed by a truck.

The lorry overturned after one of its tyres exploded, sending it straight down onto the passenger compartment of the passing cab in Xi’an, Shaanxi province.

Cabbie Li Win explained: "I'd just dropped a passenger off less than a minute before it happened so he is a very lucky man."

"Looking at the state of my taxi I'm amazed I could walk away from it. I was trapped between the two trucks and all I could do is watch one of them come down on me," he added.
