He was taken to hospital with a fractured pelvis, and is being treated for his injury.

Local traffic police officer Tang Xiaoqi was first on the scene and encouraged people to help in the rescue effort.

According to the Daily Mail, he said: 'People nearby, passengers from the bus and pedestrians waiting at the traffic lights by this intersection all came together to lift the bus.

"We failed at first, but then more people joined in - some lifting and some pulling the victim - and eventually we got him out."

"Good people can be found everywhere in our society."
