Five-year-old Cain Byrne has been dubbed Miracle Boy after crashing his bike head-first into a bus and surviving without a scratch.

Pint-sized Cain was wearing just shorts and a T-shirt when he was thrown off and bounced out of the vehicle's path as it shuddered to a halt.

He was rushed to hospital where he was X-rayed and had his body scanned. Amazed staff discovered he hadn't broken a single bone.

His father Roger, 35, said: 'It's a miracle Cain is alive, he is tiny for his age and he is the luckiest boy in the world.

'He is a really lively brilliant kid, he was only wearing short and a T-shirt but there wasn't even a cut or a bruise on his arms or legs. Its amazing that he survived and even more amazing he's not been injured.

this is crazy firstly that this 5 year old was riding a bike unattended by a main road,

and secondly he had no injury.

"We have CCTV cameras on the bus and we will be looking very closely at the footage to see if it shows what happened. We have witnesses who say the driver did everything he could to avoid a collision"

i wonder if the cctv shows how violent the impact was.

maybe this kids a bit like bruce in the film Unbreakable

just a bit harder than the normal human.

I'm in two minds about stories like this.

Anyone who lets their small child ride a bike on the pavement by a road with buses on it needs a stern talking to. The average street in Britain is cramped, especially when compared to our American counterparts. However, the article is far from clear on the actual circumstances involved and is a classic example of how our newspapers in the UK are full of nothing stories designed to induce fear, paranoia and thus, division.

If you read some of the comments in the link provided you can see the media induced hysteria-level of the average Brit nowadays, it's crazy.

I agree about him being too young to be out without adult supervision.Thank goodness he wasn't killed,beaten up for his bike,grabbed by a paedo etc - there were so many other things that could have gone wrong so the little lad got off very lightly.Let's hope it is a wake-up call for the parents.

"Killed", "Beaten for his bike", "Paedos"... etc. Get a grip people!

I think it's great he survived though! God (or whatever the guiding force in the universe is) was looking out for that kid. I've seen people get hit by buses and it's not pretty.

Me too. Whenever I see a 'miracle' story and the words 'daily mail' my average intellect kicks in and I realise it's bullshhhht.
