Chinese man luckily survives fall into river after bank collapses under him

A Chinese man luckily survived falling into a river after the six-metre-high river bank collapsed underneath him in northern China.

The terrifying moment, filmed in Baoding City in Hebei Province on May 8, shows a man shooting videos at the edge of a river bank, suddenly tumbling into the river as the bank collapses.

Fortunately, he climbed onto the shore by himself later and was not injured severely.

According to reports, the man was jumping on the bank before the incident happened, possibly loosening the soil.
