Dog walker pulls handle off front door and is blown into bush

This is the amusing moment a dog walker got stuck in a garden bush - after yanking the handle off his front door during strong winds.

Sam Green, 65, was filmed by his smart doorbell as he lost his balance in the wind after his front door handle comes away in his hand. Mr Green then stumbles backwards, falls over his dog, and tumbles backwards into his garden bush.

To make matters worse he couldn't get up - and the video shows an amused passerby haul him to his feet as his bemused dogs, Fudge and Poppy, looked on.

The whole incident was all filmed by the household's Nest doorbell app - which alerted the rest of the family to the 'motion' by sending them the clip of what was happening.

Dad-of-two, Sam, from St Annes, Lancashire, told the Daily Mail: "Our front door faces the coast so I had to give it a good yank to close it.

"But I put so much force into it that the metal handle came away in my hand... I thought to myself, "This is going to end so badly".

"Before I knew it, I had landed in the bushes and couldn't get out.'
