Have you ever witnessed a car accident? Even if nobody has been seriously injured, it can get your adrenaline pumping and take you a few hours just to settle down from what you saw. But can you imagine driving down the road behind a truck carrying a shipping container, when the truck swerves to avoid hitting another car, but in so doing the container crashes down on top of another car? It ends up getting flattened out like a pancake and everyone thinks there is no way someone could have survived such a horrific accident. That is exactly what happened with this story, but you may be shocked by the outcome.
This is a picture of car that was smashed underneath a shipping container during a terrible accident.
No one could possibly survive such an accident with less than 70 cm of space in the car, and yet a woman’s voice is heard from within the wreckage.
She manages to give the thumbs up sign letting her rescuers know she is not only alive, but okay!
According to CP World, when first responders in China saw the car, which was flattened under the container, they thought they would be recovering bodies.
Instead they were able to save a woman who only had some scrapes and bruises, along with her male companion who had injuries that were only slightly more serious.
A 100 tonne crane had to be brought in to gently remove the container from on top of the car.
As you can see here, there are arms coming out the back window, trying to be rescued.
The woman manages to escape through the back window into the arms of her rescuers.
Nobody would have guessed that someone could have survived this accident.
Let alone two people surviving this catastrophe.
It’s simply amazing that this couple survived such a terrible accident. Hopefully they don’t take their lives for granted and live each day to the fullest knowing that they could have so easily lost their lives, crushed under a container truck.
