A bus driver in China has been called a hero after he managed to stop his vehicle after a huge power pole or lamp post crashed through his windshield.

Surveillance camera video appears to show Mao Zhihao talking to someone before seeing the danger heading his way, but he still has almost no time to react as the big blue pole slams through the front window.

It hit him, but he literally dodged death and was able to stop the bus. He helped passengers get off the bus in spite of the fact that he had a ruptured spleen.

Passengers were clearly shaken but not hurt.
