Simon Smith is the luckiest man alive.

Smith, 53, was walking down the street in the early morning in Reading, Berkshire, when a double decker bus driver lost control, and struck him. It wasn't like a love-tap either. It straight up plows him over.

He just gets up, dusts himself off, and walks directly into the pub where he was heading anyway.

“I think he [Simon] pretty much got up, brushed himself down and then an ambulance came and took him to be checked,” said Daniel Fraifeld, the co-owner of the Purple Turtle bar. “He got looked over and didn’t have any lasting injuries – but he’s covered in scrapes and bruises.”

He did go back for a pint to relax after he was checked out.
