Video footage has emerged of the moment a crowd of people in Walthamstow, London, lifted a double-decker bus off a trapped unicyclist. A British newspaper reported that up to 100 people rushed to help the man, who has been left in a serious condition in hospital, following the accident in Hoe Street on Thursday evening. Sky News also reported that the crowd managed to slightly lift the 12-tonne bus and move it off the man before he was treated by the emergency services. Eyewitness Kyra Sam told reporters, “I’m really amazed at the strength of Walthamsow – no one hesitated to push the bus off, I was in shock. Everyone really came together to help – it was really nice to see that in the face of something so awful.”
