Lucky escape as digger rolls over with workman inside

This is the heart-stopping moment a man nearly escapes death after the crane he was driving collapsed during the demolition of a house.

The footage, captured in Navotas, Philippines, shows the crane tumbling down after demolishing the wall of a house.

A man walks out of the crane -seemingly unharmed- but stumbles on a rock and falls down.

A witness of the incident can be seen running towards the man and helping him to walk away from the scene of the accident.

The clip was filmed on March 10.
