This is the moment a woman who was busy staring at her mobile phone survives being run over and crushed by a pick up truck after passers-by worked together to help lift her free.
The accident happened in the city of Jiuquan in China’s north-western Gansu Province, where footage shows her walking behind the utility vehicle while crossing a road.
She can be seen looking at her phone and does not notice as the pickup reverses towards her.
The back of the car pushes against her, nudging her a few feet before causing her to lose her footing.

She ultimately falls onto the road and the vehicle reverses over her, pinning the her to the ground.
The traffic camera footage shows the pickup truck driver trying to help the victim when other passers-by run over to lend a hand.
In the end, a group of around half a dozen local residents lift the back of the pickup truck and free the woman, who amazingly survived the accident without suffering any serious injuries.
Reports have suggested her thick down jacket was to thank.
The case is still being investigated.
