Normally, when somebody tells you they're lucky to be alive, it's either just before or after a statement that registers so hard on your bullshit meter that the needle snaps off.

However, these two cyclists can make the claim quite legitimately.

The two were taking a ride in Kirovskaya Oblast, West of Moscow in Russia, when two lorries collided just metres in front of them. The smash sent debris flying across the road directly towards the hapless pair.

Amazingly, all of the wreckage from the massive impact managed to fly past them, leaving both unscathed.
