ISTANBUL A Turkish man says life is "beautiful" after he survived a collision between a truck and a train that was captured on security camera video.
The video, released Wednesday by Dogan news agency, shows a train ramming into a flatbed truck as it crosses train tracks in the Mediterranean port city of Mersin on Feb. 25. Propelled sideways, the truck sweeps over 32-year-old Cem Tokac, who was standing beside the tracks.
Here is the video of it...

Tokac, who plans to marry in April, said Feb. 25 is his new birthday.
"Life is really beautiful," he said.
heh... you think? Wonders what he thought of life BEFORE the accident?

First piece of luck (bad) was being there when the accident occurs.

Second piece of luck (good) was being in a spot that when hit and falling down the truck was able to go over him without crushing him.

The third and very (good) Luck piece was that the train did not derail and run him over.

WOW!

Wow.

That's the most amazing thing I've seen today.

Just. Wow.

I wonder at what moment he ruined his undergarments.

Probably just after the semi truck ran over him.

Yah, probably about then.
