No he didn't, no one performed there. It was just blind luck, good karma or any other type of divine intervention you support...

Even if he hadn't been projected from the cabin he would have been fine (in fact being projected almost got him killed), that's why seatbelt have been invented. The window's glass did perform admirably though...

Dude has been sayin' his prayers.
I would have gone straight out and bought a lottery ticket cuz today was his lucky day.

And in other news, local man slips in bathtub while taking a shower and dies.

Aint life peculiar?

And to conclude,

When it's your time to go....YOU'RE GONE.
And when it's not, you aint going nowhere.

There is a higher power at play here and if it says your time aint up then you go nowhere no matter how bad the accident.

What is it with Russians, goofball accidents and dash cam footage of it all?

I have seen a few others videos along the same lines out of Russia.. One shows a semi crossing center line and missing a car at the very last moment.

You're right! These types of videos do seem to originate from there more often than other places.


Then again, this was just another Tuesday for the guy probably. Has anyone seen that video of those kids swinging from the tops of videos with rope, just for the heck of it?!


Burly people from a burly land.

"Russia's Funniest Home Videos" maybe?

Remember when handy cams "just happened to be on" for those "hilarious" crazy groin busting antics?

I definitely blame Bob Sagetov!

*to be fair, this one did not seem staged.
Then again that dog driving the tractor mower into the pile of tennis balls which sent one flying directly into the groin of the guy standing on the edge of the pier sending him flying into the water sure looked real too. (cue laugh track here!).

You'd be amazed at what you can catch on a dashcam. The behaviors of people and the physics of mass-in-motion sometimes put you at the perfect time and place to deliver the money shot.

Dashcams are very popular in Russia and the Far East and they are making giant inroads in the "west" now. With good reason.
