Reporter cheats death after being hit by drifting car

Yahoo! New Zealand Updated July 11, 2012, 1:10 pm

A Russian reporter is lucky to be alive after he was hit by a drifting car live on TV.

The shocking incident happened during an episode of the Russian TV show Auto Exotica, which is a bit like Top Gear.

Everything looks to be going ok, that is until the driver comes a little too close to the reporter for comfort and this happens:

Apparently the reporter was not seriously injured, and pretty lucky he is still alive.

    Typical boy-racers. Can't even dodge a stationary object when they KNOW it is there.
