Watch this schoolboy's near-miss with an oncoming truck

How's this for a near miss?

A Norwegian schoolboy has only just escaped with his life after emerging from behind a school bus and running straight into the path of an oncoming truck.

Luckily, the driver of the truck slammed on the brakes — missing him by centimetres.

The footage was captured by a dashboard camera in a truck waiting behind the stationary bus in Herad, southern Norway, on June 19.

Driver Tor-Bjorn Kyrkjebo said when he saw what was about to happen he flashed his lights, which he thinks helped alert the trucker — who managed to stop just in time.
