BUS-TED: Footage shows prankster clinging to the back of a bus as it goes 30mph
Shocking footage shows the moment a prankster risked his life by clinging to the back of a moving bus as it travelled along a busy city road.
The reckless lad was captured holding onto the back of the X14 National Express West Midlands vehicle as it went along at 30mph in Pype Hayes, Birmingham.
He can be seen smiling for the camera while precariously balancing on the bumper as a passing vehicle overtakes the bus on Tyburn Road on Thursday afternoon (15/4).
The 16-second clip has gone viral since being uploaded to the website Birmz is Grime where many web users slammed his dangerous actions.
Laura Shotton said: "Its all fun and games until he hits a speed bump and comes flying off. What a complete moron."
Barry Fearn added: "This is stupid on another level, all it needs is one wrong turn and he comes off and goes beneath the wheels of a car behind."
Carl Richards said: "Eat your heart out Marty McFly, all that is missing is the skateboard. Still a very daft thing to be doing."
Tim Vincent wrote: "Breathtaking stupidity, have these lads got nothing better to do with their time."
Lance Crawshaw put: "Practising for the Darwin Award. Eventually he will get it right and harm himself. Hopefully no innocents get hurt in his endeavours."
Graham Tarry commented: "We've all done naughty and dangerous things as a youngster - but this is taking it a step too far. Lucky not to have been killed."
