Helmet saves biker's life after water pipe falls from building onto his head in China

A helmet saved a biker's life after a water pipe fell from a building onto his head in southern China. The terrifying moment, filmed in the city of Ganzhou in Jiangxi Province on October 22, shows a water pipe suddenly falling down from a residential building and striking a scooter driver's head as he happened to drive past. The biker then got off his scooter and rested on the side of the road. He reportedly called the police and drove away. According to reports, the water pipe was dropping from the fifth-floor balcony and was being used to hang clothes. Since it was ageing, it dropped down. The flat owner was blamed for the incident. Thanks to the helmet, the biker's head was not injured. The video was provided by local media with permission.
