Bike rider’s brakes fail sending him crashing into fence


This is the moment a cyclist’s brakes failed and he crashed head-on into a fence – but dusted himself down and walked away.

The rider was speeding downhill when he approached a bend in the town of San Mateo in Rizal, the Philippines on January 12.

His brakes failed and there was not enough time to turn.

CCTV footage shows how he slammed straight into a wire fence and flew over the handlebars, but bounced back and landed on the roadside. He had bruises on his arms and legs.

Village officer Jomer Alejandro Cruz said: ‘That side of the road is prone to accidents, which is why I installed the camera, to watch out the safety of all citizens and to the visitors of the town.’
