WATCH: Definition Of A Near Miss?

Of the many videos and links which we get sent into us via our military and emergency services social media pages and groups, this video stood out for obvious reasons.

In the short video below, a male can be seen casually crossing the street during a firefight.

It is not known where the footage was shot, who filmed it or how long ago it was filmed, but it was shared on the popular military facebook page ‘Funker530 – Combat Footage’.

There were reports that the salvo being fired was an RPG, but some people have pointed out that it could be a high calibre rifle tracer round instead.

Regardless of what it is, for a split second this person was probably the ‘luckiest’ man on earth.
