Pedestrian dodges taxi barreling through swapping station in China

This is the heart-stopping moment a pedestrian barely dodged a taxi barreling through a battery swapping station in southern China.

Video taken in the city of Sanya in Hainan province on January 8 shows the man gesturing to help the cab pass through the narrow passage. However, the vehicle apparently lost control, accelerating forward and almost plowing into him.

The man managed to move aside at the last second, but the taxi crashed through a stone wall and only stopped when it hit a tree.
