Sometimes the difference between life and death comes down to just plain old dumb luck, as was the case with this pooch.
During a rally race in Bolivia, a stray dog wandered onto the track and directly into the path of a speeding rally car. Bystanders are heard trying to scare the dog off the track while others attempt to warn the driver. But because this part of the course is out of the view of the driver until he rounds the corner, no one dares to put their life in danger to save the stray. The dog, it seems, is doomed.
The rally car hurls around the corner at a blistering speed. The unfortunate dog is now directly in front of the car. People brace themselves for the worst, but then a miracle happens.
As the dog scrambles for his life, he by chance runs just past an embankment. The rally car hits that same embankment less than a second later and launches into the air, flying just over the dog, missing him by mere inches.
By sheer luck, no one is hurt. The dogs runs off, scared, but uninjured, while the driver continues down the course!
