Driver narrowly survives being crushed to death after bus flips over in Singapore

This is the shocking moment a driver narrowly survived after a bus flipped over – coming within inches of crushing him to death.

CCTV footage from Singapore shows the vehicle crashing and toppling on its side before the driver is flung out of the window.

The bus nearly falls on top of the driver who adopts a fetal position to protect his neck and head.

Fortunately, the vehicle tumbles just a few inches away from him.

An officer from the Singapore Civil Defense Force (SCDF) said 17 people including the driver were taken to hospital for treatment, while three of them only had minor injuries and asked to be discharged immediately.
