Police catch two men after daredevil filmed hanging off wing mirror of moving bus
A man was filmed clinging to the wing mirror of a bus as it carried on its journey at speeds of 30mph.
A passenger’s smartphone video shows a young man in a red T-shirt and jeans clinging to the wing mirror on its route.
He seems quite happy to dangle there at speeds of up to 30mph despite the obvious danger, occasionally using the edge of the bus door as a toe hold.
The driver continues despite his presence, though he could not have failed to have noticed him.
Police investigating the incident say they have arrested two men in connection with it but did not disclose what they were suspected of.
At one point a loud vehicle horn is heard, persisting for several seconds.
But it is not clear whether it was the bus driver sounding their horn, or another driver.
Witnesses were divided as to why the man was hanging from the mirror.
One theory is that the man was a thief who the driver managed to exclude from the bus before driving off.
The other is that the man was a passenger who refused to pay his fare and clung on for a risky free journey.
The incident occurred in the city of Cali, in the western Colombian department of Valle del Cauca.
