Accidents may occur anytime and anywhere. But, there are also unexpected people, moments, or things that we least expect to save us from on otherwise unfortunate moments.
Just like this guy from China who was miraculously saved by his big belly from almost falling into a very deep well!
The incident which reportedly took place in Yinchuan, Luoyang features a 28-year-old guy who was only known by his last name Liu. According to Daily Mail, Liu fell to the family-owned well while he was trying to fill the dry well with wood and stones for it to be completely sealed.
In a video clip that has circulated in various Chinese social media platforms, Liu is seen calmly waiting for rescuers to lift him up and out of the well. Photos also show that the area is quite slippery which might have been the cause of Liu accidentally falling into the empty well.
He can even be seen with his arms crossed over his body. It was as if we were just calmly standing in one corner if you look at only the upper part of his body. But of course, it will be a different scene when you see the whole view.
Over a dozen firemen and medical staff were there to rescue Liu. They tied a rope around his waist so they can lift him without creating additional injuries to his body.
It was also reported that Liu was weighing about 500 pounds as estimated by the firemen and the excess fat on his belly is what enabled him to not fully plunge into the deep well.
