Low hanging cable flings a man off his motorbike – VIDEO
A low hanging electricity cable caught a man by the neck and dragged him off his speeding motorbike in Khon Kaen, north eastern Thailand.
The rider, who also was wearing a full face helmet, was able to bounce back, repair his broken bike, and continued on his journey.
The footage was captured by a security camera at a car maintenance shop. It showed the rider being snagged across the neck by a dangling cable, causing him to smash hard onto the road as his bike crashed and rolled down the road.
The local vendors said this was not the first time such an incident occurred, and cables keep falling across the street at that location. They said that the authorities accountable for the maintenance of the wires never cared to repair them.
