Motorist’s miraculous escape from shocking landslide

Michael Tabudravu, a New Zealand motorist, had a remarkably lucky escape after he narrowly avoided being crushed by a powerful landslide.

Remarkably, he still managed to film the dramatic event. The rock-laden slip came barrelling down the Waioeka Gorge in the Bay of Plenty on the country's North Island, just meters away from the plucky camerman's vehicle. The landslide forced New Zealand's Transport Agency to close the gorge overnight. It described the incident as "significant" and asked motorists to use an alternative route, adding that a full assessment would be carried out Monday morning.
