Cyclist Narrowly Escapes Being Crushed To Death By A Tree

This is the heart-stopping moment a cyclist is almost crushed to death by a falling tree as bungling workmen chop it down on a busy road.

The video begins with two arborists working on the tree as traffic drives past on Adelaide Road in South London.

Two cyclists approach and one gets past without any problems, but suddenly the tree falls just as the second cyclist passes underneath it. The tree narrowly misses the cyclist, landing with a heavy thump behind them.
