fter being impaled by a 4-meter-long guard rail, one accident victim remained surprisingly calm and was even seen playing around on his mobile phone while waiting to be rescued.
The accident occurred on a street in the city of Liaoyang in Liaoning province, with the driver accidentally colliding with a guard rail. Part of that rail snapped off, piercing through the driver’s front windshield and penetrating through the upper-left side of his chest.
Being unable to move, the man apparently decided to pass the time by fiddling around on his mobile phone. While he was forced to stop for a bit as rescuers cut through the guard rail with a circular saw, he was back on his phone yet again as rescuers lifted him into the ambulance, seemingly unconcerned about the hunk of metal running straight through his body.
It’s not clear if the man’s apparent cell phone addiction caused the crash. Last month, a surveillance camera caught footage of a young woman looking at her phone while piloting a scooter. The woman is seen crashing into the back of another scooter, a collision which knocks her to the street, where she continues to play around on her phone.
