This is the incredible moment that a judge is trapped alive in the legroom of his mutilated car that has been crushed between two trucks in a mutilated wreck.
The driver, Davi Cardoso, 35, is still miraculously aware and talked in a video of the massacre filmed after the smash in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, last Thursday.
It then took the rescue workers more than three hours to get him out of the car, by which time he had lost consciousness.
Judge Davi Cardoso, 35, has been miraculously found alive in the footwell of his car after a crash in Belo Horizonte, Brazil
Cardoso was on his way home from work on the BR040 when the terrible traffic jam occurred during heavy traffic.
The video shows other motorists besides the two trucks full of surprise how they find Cardoso alive and trapped in the unrecognizable remains of his car.
The white cab of the tow truck is pushed up against the red trailer of the person at the front, with what is left of Mr Cardoso's car in between.
A man in a gray vest looks into the small space after opening a piece of broken glass on the Fiat Punto and the judge waving his hand.
Others seem to shout that he remains calm while the man calls & take me out! & # 39; and the traffic still flows past.
In a notable windfall, it seems that Mr. Cardoso was thrown into the footwell of the car during the crash, the only space inside the damaged car that remained intact.
Fortunately, gasoline did not leak from the affected vehicle, although steam that hissed from the engine caused an alarm.
Rescuers are then seen at the site of the crash and have managed to get the now unconscious 35-year-old out of the wreck.
A bag of liquids connected to an infusion is suspended at the front and is knocked down when Mr. Cardoso is lowered to the floor on a stretcher.
His brother Mateus is seen as smiling and embracing his father next to the stretcher, surprised by Mr. Cardoso's remarkable escape.
His car was crushed between two trucks on the BR040 motorway during rush hour while Mr. Cardoso drove home
It took the rescue worker three hours to free him from the footwell by the time he lost consciousness
According to the traffic police, the accident was caused by the driver of another truck that performed a dangerous maneuver that accelerated the series of almost tragic events
Celebrating the rescue, Mateus said they were & # 39; grateful for all the efforts made to save Davi and that it was nothing less than a miracle that he had survived. "
According to road traffic police, the accident was said to have been caused by the driver of another truck that had performed a dangerous maneuver that accelerated the series of almost tragic events.
Military police officer Sergeant Fabiano Silva told Brazilian television TV: & A truck for the red truck apparently changed lane without warning, forcing the red truck driver to hit his brakes.
& # 39; Davi drove right behind the truck and also had to hit the brakes.
& # 39; We believe the truck behind Davi could not stop on time and he plowed into his car.
& # 39; He literally drove over and came to lie on top of his vehicle with the heavy weight of the cab and crushed it under the rear axle of the red truck at the front. & # 39;
Sergeant Silva said: & # 39; Unfortunately we could not remove it ourselves because we had to wait for the fire brigade to find its way to the location, due to the heavy traffic, with the right cutting and lifting equipment. & # 39;
A crane was used to lift the cab of the truck from the top of the car and an inflatable device propped the heavy truck and submerged it to stabilize and prevent it from falling on agents while working to release the victim to leave.
Captain Fire Department, Thiago Mirando, said: "It was a difficult and dangerous procedure that distinguished the vehicles and kept the health of the victim stable."
Fortunately, there was no one left with Mr. Cardoso in the car because it had & # 39; a great tragedy & # 39; could be, said Captain Mirando.
