Incredibly brave men push truck on fire away from petrol station

This is the heart-stopping moment a group of brave men pushes away a truck after it caught fire at a petrol station.

The truck had come to refuel at a gas station in Elamathur near Erode in South India on February 15.

Smoke started coming out of the truck and the fire spread quickly threatening to explode.

Workers at the station realised that taking the truck out of the station was the only solution to avoid any tragedy.

CCTV footage shows the driver getting into the truck to change the gear to neutral before workers push the vehicle away from the petrol station.
