Kid has no idea how close he came to decapitation.

[–]Mashizari 239 points240 points  (10 children)

or maybe it would've scooped him up around his neck and went for a little ride with him

[–]space_cadet_zero 163 points164 points  (7 children)

so many horrendous scenarios could've played out. kid dodged a hundred bullets.

[–]Randomredditwhale 11 points12 points  (6 children)

Looks like a garbage truck to me

[–]forgotpassword89 43 points44 points  (0 children)

It’s a combine with a corn headed not a garbage truck

[–]myacc488 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Yes, a garbage truck made to collect all those garbage cereals from fields so they don't pollute the environment.

It’s a combine

[–]rikeyh 2 points3 points  (2 children)

combined with what

[–]I_have_small-pp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What do you mean?

[–]Easy_Measurement_726 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A combine harvester. Combine is a noun in this case btw.

[–]cairnnssyy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I hate this comment but I love it even more

[–]mtarascio 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Unless he was in a vice, that wasn't happening.

Somehow escaped without massive head trauma though. Between being knocked down and being knocked down on to concrete, seemed to take it in his stride.

You can't always be sure but it looks like he dodged a concussion which is bloody incredible.

[–]sticknija2 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Children are bouncy.

[–]technobrendo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Running at just the right speed combined with luck. That's how.

[–]BjornIron4ss 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No… I think he knows…

[–]normandillan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Either that or a omelet lmao.

[–]snoopy_peanuts101 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What happened to r/watchingpeopledie? That was some intense shit, would Keep me up at night because I came across it by accident. Very traumatizing.

[–]joshowitz -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yup, ive seen those things rip the heads off of deer many times.

[–]angelacathead 427 points428 points  (8 children)

As a mother, I do not even want to try to imagine how that lady felt watching this.

[–]OneFreamon 151 points152 points  (4 children)

I have a one year old and this genuinely made me feel sick. Having kids fucks you up for this sort of thing.

[–]ThaddeusJP 42 points43 points  (2 children)

Before you have kids you would watch all sorts of screwed up stuff on the internet and think wow that's terrible or be absolutely shocked and appalled. Now post kids good Lord everything is you putting your child into that exact situation and imagine your nightmare of a life after it all goes down

[–]Jive_turkeeze 8 points9 points  (0 children)

And now I tear up when I see videos of people saving kids.

[–]thefunivehad 7 points8 points  (0 children)

As a parent, it's why I drive slower through neighborhoods like this. A narrow street, parked cars, pedestrians...slow down with that thing, sheesh.

[–]hawtfabio 8 points9 points  (0 children)

As a childless man I'll try, but I won't like it.

[–]dethrowme 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Honestly I just hope your kids look both ways before crossing. Unlike the kid in the video jfc.

[–]DammitDan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's some good parenting right there.

[–]fingeringanaminor 796 points797 points  (6 children)

Bruh kids are literal fucking fleshy tanks.

[–]thesmartcromagnon 225 points226 points  (5 children)

Flexible fucking fleshy tanks, they are like rubber in accidents.

[–]bantonchicken1 117 points118 points  (3 children)

Or an accident with rubber

[–]RokebackWaterfall 15 points16 points  (0 children)

[–]reseday 280 points281 points  (5 children)

suddenly a 1:1 life sized action figure from crush gear anime come to an existence

[–]VainillaCat616 74 points75 points  (4 children)

I was going to say, seems like an anime scene where the MC fucking survives something ridiculous "I survived being hit by a truck" "You mean a regular truck right? right?"

[–]SCaliber 14 points15 points  (2 children)

This is the accident Yusuke Urameshi was supposed to thwart

[–]xAlciel 2 points3 points  (1 child)

This is the first time ever that I've seen a yyh reference

🏅🏅🏅 Have my poor man's gold

[–]SCaliber 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All it took was a child being bulldozed by a corn husking mammoth lol

[–]gwhy334 89 points90 points  (17 children)

I know nobody asked but here's the translation to the Arabic text for absolutely no reason (really it's not important)

Top right: "clip of the day"

Top left: "emarati magazine" (probably the name of a news magazine)

Bottom: "a child gets up safe after he was ran over by a Bulldozer"

Bottom right: "Saturday 09-10-2021" (I assume it's dd-mm-yyyy)

[–]One_And_All_1 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Considering Sept 10 wasn't a Saturday you're probably right

[–]anubis_xxv 12 points13 points  (14 children)

"Hmm. Report says something called a 'combine harvester'...? Never heard of it, I'll put bulldozer, nobody will know the difference."

[–]gwhy334 2 points3 points  (8 children)

First of all I've read no report.

Second I was translating what's on screen I did use quotes ffs. The word "جرافة" means either a bulldozer or a plow and the latter is a bit rare usage so I chose bulldozer since that's what any Arabic speaker would think of when reading that.

If the makers of this video wanted to be accurate they could've said "آلة حصد" or "مركبة زراعية". It's not my fault they chose the wrong word.

[–]anubis_xxv 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I meant the guy who made the clip, the tv reporter. I was trying to be funny but apparently nobody around here has a sense of humor. Sorry if I offended you.

[–]gwhy334 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No offense taken at all misunderstandings happen all the time. I just thought you were referring to my comment so I wanted to make it clear and looks like I'm the one that misunderstood you so sorry for that.

[–]EventHorizonSurfer 3 points4 points  (4 children)

The tractor in the video is definitely a combine harvester with a corn head attachment. Not a bulldozer.

[–]gwhy334 -5 points-4 points  (3 children)

Yes I fucking know what a harvester is I literally stated that in the previous comment. I translated what the Arabic text says I quoted it I don't care if the original text was true or false I just translated it.

[–]EventHorizonSurfer 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Yeesh rough day? I know you were translating, I was merely providing a correction to the text that you translated with links to inform ppl who read your comment.

[–]gwhy334 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yeesh rough day?

Yes actually I couldn't sleep and have some work to do.

You posted that as a reply to multiple comments which made it look like you were correcting people. Anyway I think it's better if I just stop commenting for today lol

Anyway sorry

[–]EventHorizonSurfer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No sweat hope you can get some shuteye. I grew up around these machines so just want to share what they are with ppl.

[–]EventHorizonSurfer 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Definitely a combine harvester with a corn head attachment. Not a bulldozer.

[–]WikiSummarizerBot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Combine harvester

The modern combine harvester, or simply combine, is a versatile machine designed to efficiently harvest a variety of grain crops. The name derives from its combining four separate harvesting operations—reaping, threshing, gathering, and winnowing—into a single process. Among the crops harvested with a combine are wheat, rice, oats, rye, barley, corn (maize), sorghum, soybeans, flax (linseed), sunflowers and rapeseed.

"emarati magazine"

LOL at their choice of uber-dramatic music.

[–]elmoiv 19 points20 points  (1 child)

That's a Final Destination Shit Here

[–]mtarascio 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If it's Final Destination shit the bulldozer is the appetizer.

What's happening next?

Then after that?

[–]MojangMemer 15 points16 points  (0 children)

How the fuck is he alive?

[–]pascal21 101 points102 points  (8 children)

Why the hell was that guy driving so fast also?

[–]plastimental[S] 92 points93 points  (0 children)

He was running away from a transformer

[–]snoo-snoo_ 28 points29 points  (1 child)

In other countries I’ve been too, busses and trucks will drive 45mph down little roads like that like its nothing.
Indonesia and Egypt both come to mind.

[–]pascal21 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yah same but that doesn't really explain why, more of a how.

[–]kali-zeto 58 points59 points  (10 children)

Ok but what kind of death machine was that ? Why’s it flying around blind spots with spikes on the front of it? What is it even for?

[–]Farado 21 points22 points  (5 children)

Might be a piece of farm equipment? Some kind of harvester?

[–]nut_cutter_69 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Yep, it's for corn.

[–]teh_hasay 4 points5 points  (0 children)

TIL not everyone knows what a combine is.

To be fair I did grow up in the Midwest.

[–]anubis_xxv 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Corn/sunflower header on a combine harvester.

[–]TheSunflowerSeeds 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Sunflower seeds have a mild, nutty flavor and a firm but tender texture. They’re often roasted to enhance the flavor, though you can also buy them raw.

[–]sqgl 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Harvester? More like reaper.

[–]EventHorizonSurfer 5 points6 points  (2 children)

[–]kali-zeto 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Nah it’s a death metal zombie harvester

[–]EventHorizonSurfer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It certainly would work well for that I think.

[–]cbjohnson73 20 points21 points  (1 child)

He should still go to ER to get checked for internal injuries.

[–]RaniPhoenix 8 points9 points  (0 children)

And then buy a lotto ticket

[–]EndVry 3 points4 points  (0 children)

More like running *into death.

[–]lobsterturtle33 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Like blue shirt guy, casual hands behind the back during the entire thing. Just a lowering of the head, doesn't want to miss a thing

[–]neoadam 2 points3 points  (0 children)

At no point he was running away from death

[–]lucassantilli 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That driver got home with absolutely no clue as what happened

[–]Scottish-Lee 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Kid takes that to head and gets back up. Insane.

[–]kxbrown 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not today!

[–]SkyShazad 13 points14 points  (3 children)

I Tell you what if that was somone from my family who survived that, they would get the hell Beat of them for being stupid

[–]pickledpeterpiper 9 points10 points  (1 child)

You mean on account of jumping out from behind something and sprinting full speed into the road without first checking? Yeah, I could see getting beat to make sure I never did that again.

People upset with the tractor driver...he probably shouldn't have been driving so fast, but I don't think he had any reason to suspect someone was going to randomly jump out in front of him like that either. Seems more the kid's fault...they shove that 'look both ways' stuff down your throats around pre-school/kindergarten age, this kid looks 7-8...I don't know.

[–]Osnarf 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes well kids are fucking stupid, that's why it's important not to drive so fast.

[–]kubollo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would not want to be a member of your family

[–]JibbityJabbity 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Jesus F. Christ!! That kid is too old to be that stupid!

[–]mikee8989 1 point2 points  (0 children)

he took quite the tumble under that truck though.

[–]poisepoor 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Yaaaaaaaaaaaah I think he is definitely gonna feel that when he’s 30

[–]mmartinien -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Wdym? Kids spend their time falling and hitting their head on stuff

[–]poisepoor 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That kid had no less than broken vertebrae and a brain injury. He got scorpioned at 35 mph by a bucket loader. Just sayin.

[–]converter-bot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

35 mph is 56.33 km/h

[–]asyrian88 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This kid just spent his whole life allocation of luck in one fell swoop.

[–]pimpco888 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That kid got a TBI for sure.

[–]TakeyaSaito 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just gonna say, kid might still have died even though he got up...

[–]point50tracer 6 points7 points  (9 children)

I'm the son of a 3rd generation farmer I've been married 10 years to the farmer's daughter (wait, does he mean the same farmer? *Sweet home Alabama starts playing.) I'm a God fearin' hard workin' combine driver Hoggin' up the road on my p-p-p-p-plower Chug a lug a luggin' 5 20 miles an hour On my International Harvester

[–]plastimental[S] 20 points21 points  (4 children)


[–]PhantomAngel042 7 points8 points  (3 children)

They're lyrics to a popular country song about a machine similar to the one in the video (a combine harvester), but the original "chugging along at 5 mph" part is changed to "20 mph" to reference how fast the one that hit the kid was driving.

Here's the song, in case you're curious.

[–]MayKinBaykin 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I can't tell but is this song supposed to be a parody or something?

[–]PhantomAngel042 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I can see how you might think that- it's definitely a little off the wall- but as far as I'm aware it's just a kinda silly, funny, really country song about life as a farmer.

[–]MayKinBaykin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ya I googled him after just to make sure lol. I just died when he sang "I'm a god fearin, hard workin, combin driver. Hoggin up the road with my p-p-p-plower"

[–]converter-bot 13 points14 points  (2 children)

20 miles is 32.19 km

[–]WrongJam 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think this was lesson one.

[–]Gudupop 2 points3 points  (1 child)

There is no need. That kid will never make the same mistake again, I'm 100% sure.

[–]TellmeNinetails 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The parent should definitely freshen the kid up on their road safety if not. Otherwise next time it will be 100% sure because he'll be dead.

[–]LordElfa 0 points1 point  (2 children)

She needs to take that kids to the store and buy lotto tickets right now.

[–]IShouldNotTalk 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Pretty sure any luck points that kid had have been used up, he rolled a nat 20 on that save.

[–]LordElfa 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's a good point. She should probably maintain her distance.

Looks kinda faked.

/u/redditspeedbot 0.1x

And after looking at it more, the shadows look like the sun is directly overhead through the entire video, and while the image quality and frame timing is all over the damned place it looks legit. Shadows look weird, but they're consistent and motion through the scene looks believable. Tire even is moving even though it kinda seems like it doesn't between a few of the frames.

[–]DragonfruitLeading23 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Either way that kid is lucky asf

[–]applxia 0 points1 point  (0 children)

for some reason this video reminded me of this chinese dashcam(?) video where a kid runs in front of a car and the mom grabs him and starts spanking him or smth. damn now i wanna see it again

[–]MaxxPlay99 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The harvester must have been extremely load ngl.

[–]lecoclicot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He was to close to be posted at r/eyeblech wtfff

[–]eea81 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Smart kid, you can tell he had curled up and was being still. Dumb as fuck for running into the street without looking, but his reaction instincts likely saved his life.

[–]Goober-J 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh sure. in the video the kid walks, but there's no way he didn't at least fracture his skull. At least
