Is he made of steel or something? This man got hit by a bus, then miraculously gets up to dust himself off and walks to a nearby pub.
Simon Smith, 53, was walking on Gun Street in Reading last Sunday morning, when an out-of-control vehicle sent him flying for over a distance of 20ft. Seconds later, he is seen standing up and calmly walking on the entrance of Purple Turtle bar. The CCTV of the establishment recorded the whole accident.

He looked over his shoulders and saw a bus was about to hit him.
Oh no! There’s no time to dodge it!
He was thrown off the pavement, the windscreen of the bus was shattered by the impact.
From the looks of it, his injuries must be pretty bad…
But yup, he got up just like that.
A spokesman from Reading Buses told The Telegraph that Smith was later taken to the hospital with minor bruises, and was discharged later that day:
“We are obviously shocked by the incident as well as the very graphic footage that has been shared a number of times.Thankfully, the pedestrian does not have any major injuries and there were no major injuries to passengers on the bus.”
Currently, no arrests has been made. But the spokesman added that aside from the police investigation, they are also doing an internal investigation of the incident:
“We can assure the public that all our drivers are incredibly professional and trained to the highest standard. Our buses receive regular checks by our award-winning engineering department. We send our regrets to those affected, especially the pedestrian injured in the street and hope that he is recovering from his injuries.”
