An Australian biker was hit by a mattress that flew off the back of a truck travelling in front of him
New Delhi: A large mattress that was not properly secured to the back of a truck caused a motorcycle accident but also broke the biker's fall in Australia. The entire incident was captured on a surveillance camera.
Aaron Wood was riding his motorcycle through a tunnel in Brisbane, Australia last week when one of two mattresses flew off the back of a truck in front of him. He swerved to the next lane but the mattress got lodged in the front tyre of his bike, causing it to flip up briefly. Luckily, he landed on the mattress, which broke his fall. The driver of the truck drove away without stopping. Mr Wood was able to walk away from the accident with only a few minor cuts on his hands.
