woman escape death after container drops on her car
A Chinese woman made a miraculous escape after her car was crushed by a giant container.
The woman was driving alongside a lorry carrying the huge, orange box, which suddenly listed to one side.
The container fell off the side of the lorry, flattening the top half of the car which came to a halt on the road in Zhangjiagang in the Jiangsu Province of China.
Miracle: This car was crushed by an enormous container which fell off a lorry, but the woman inside was somehow unhurt
Rescue: Firefighters had to wait 20 minutes for a crane to arrive and remove the heavy container
Alive: The driver, bottom-right, somehow survived the accident with no serious injuries
Salvation: Firefighters were able to cut the woman out
Firefighters were called to the scene just 1pm on Saturday, but had to wait almost twenty minutes for a crane powerful enough to life the container off of the car.
Rescuers and members of the crowd which had gathered were then astounded to hear a voice from inside the car shouting for help.
They were able to cut the car open with tools and pull the woman, who had sustained no serious injuries, to safety.
Flattened: The car had been absolutely destroyed by the weight of the container
Unscathed: The woman was lifted, unhurt, from the wreckage of her car by firefighters
Astounded: Bystanders look on as the unidentified woman is pulled out alive
