A man is lucky to be alive after being hit by a bus while texting on a cellphone, according to a video that was uploaded to the Internet.
The video was recorded by the driver of a car that was stuck in traffic in the center lane of a three-lane road.
The video shows that it was raining and cloudy at the time of the incident. Suddenly, the tall man with long hair is seen crossing the road, wiggling himself through the stopped cars.
The man, who was not identified, made it through two lanes of traffic. However, when he stepped into the third lane, a city bus driver slammed into the man while he was texting on his cellphone.
The man was thrown several feet before he hit the ground as a result of the impact. Luckily, the man picked himself up and started walking towards the driver to confront him.
For some reason, instead of being happy that he survived the impact, the man started yelling at the driver, showing him his shirt and jacket.
After a few moments, the man walked away from the scene.
Police said that the video shows the importance of being vigilant when crossing the street. Police also warned pedestrians to not use cellphones while walking and only cross streets at the crosswalks.
