A man and child miraculously survived - after falling construction debris missed them by inches.

Dramatic CCTV footage shows a man heroically saving himself and a child from a fatal accident in Northern India.

The video - taken on Sunday (17/7) in Mathura - shows a man and a child sat on his scooter by the side of the road.

As he glances up, he sees some construction debris falling from above - and acts quickly.

He grabs the child and runs inside a nearby shop, although both get knocked to the ground by the fast falling debris.

Several people then rush to the man’s aid after noticing this terrifying incident and go to comfort the child.

The extent of the pair's injuries are unclear.
