This is the moment a crane narrowly missed hitting a man and a sports car in Mexico.
A red and white crane swung its hook within inches of the man and the red 2018 Dodge Charger SXT, which costs around £20,000, at a warehouse in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico.
The recently released footage shows a man waiting on a sidewalk next to wall, while a crane begins to rise on the other side of the wall.
As the crane rises, its lifting hook suddenly swings through a gate in the wall, narrowly missing the man and the Dodge Charger.
Eventually, the operator backs up the crane to make sure it doesn’t hit the car.
The owner of the car said he was only in the area to get his car repaired, speaking after the incident took place in August this year.

‘While I was waiting for my uncle to get to the warehouse to put the design on my car, I got the word from my dad that my car was almost hit by a crane that was being operated at his warehouse.’
