Chinese bus driver survives after being hit by lamp post

A bus driver in China narrowly evaded death after a lamp post smashed through the windscreen of his vehicle.

CCTV footage of the accident, which happened in the Zhejiang Province on Monday, shows Mao Zhihao ducking for cover as the pole sends glass and debris flying through the air.

Despite suffering a ruptured spleen he managed to call for help and safely removed his 26 passengers from the bus.
