An Australian grandfather cheated death when a giant metal rod fell from a construction truck and plunged into his windscreen.
Joe Sant was driving when a truck, which was travelling in the opposite direction in Sydney’s Peakhurst, lost its load.
The rod smashed his windscreen, but thankfully narrowly missed him.
‘I just go a bit of glass in my eye, that’s all,” he told Nine News.
He went to hospital as a precaution.
