This is the bizarre moment a man was hit in his bottom after a metal gate swung open during a storm.

Footage shows the pedestrian bending down to brush dirt from his shoes in front of the gate in Taiyuan city, Shanxi province, northern China on May 6.

However, a sudden gust of strong wind blew the gate on its hinges and it swung forward – connecting directly with the man’s backside.

CCTV footage from outside the building site shows how he was knocked forward into the road before he stood up and limped away.

A construction worker secured the gate and the injured man was taken to the city’s hospital to be checked over but was not seriously hurt.
