Watch this cyclist get sideswiped and land safely on a mattress
If you’re gonna get in a wreck while biking, this is probably the best outcome you could hope for — miraculously landing on a mattress that fell off the very truck you were hit by:
The cyclist was biking on a road without a shoulder in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, when a pickup swerved to avoid him, losing a poorly secured mattress in the process. The mattress hit the cyclist’s wheel and swept him onto it in what has to be the fastest mattress delivery of all time. (A security camera at a driving school captured the incident earlier this week.)
Local officials said the cyclist only had minor injuries, according to Globo — making him an extremely lucky guy. For anyone toting big furniture, tie that shit down like you’re in 50 Shades.*
