VIDEO: Scooter rider's amazing save

As reported in the UK's Daily Mail, a scooter rider made an illegal left turn and collided with an oncoming car. A video posted on YouTube shows the rider being flung through the air.

Incredibly, he landed on an abandoned paddling-pool before bouncing into a roadside fence. 

The Mail reported that the rider was fined (the equivalent of) R2110 for not having a driving licence and not wearing a helmet.

The car driver was also penalised for driving without due care and attention.
