This hair-raising footage shows a man getting hit by a car while meditating in the rain and in the middle of the road.
The bizarre incident took place in the city of Rizhao, in the eastern Chinese Province of Shandong on 21st November.
An unnamed witness filmed the man sitting in the middle of the street and meditating apparently oblivious to the passing vehicles.
But one driver seemingly failed to notice the man sitting on the road and knocked him down after hitting him from behind.
Concerned bystanders immediately called emergency services, who confirmed the man was fine and his life was not in danger, according to local media.
The man who shot the video said the man appeared to be in poor spirits, and other witnesses told local media they believe the man might have mental problems.
The details of the incident are currently under investigation.
Meanwhile, the man who witnessed the accident shared the video on Douyin, the Chinese version of TikTok.
Many netizens agreed the driver was blameless in this situation.
User ‘wide as the sea’ said: “In this case, I suggest that the driver has no responsibility. It is raining and the vision is not good. He is sitting in the middle of the road instead of walking.”
