Every once in a while, we see a video that defies explanation, and this is definitely one of those times. Scroll down to watch security camera footage of a young man in England who might be the luckiest individual on earth.

Los Angeles' KTLA5 reports that a man and his girlfriend were having a loud argument while she was driving when the car they were in hit a wall and rolled violently. The whole thing was caught on a security camera. Judging by the grainy footage, as the car slowed its roll, the man shot through the sunroof. Instead of laying on the cement writhing in pain, though, he appears to simply stand up, dust off his clothes and check on his girlfriend. Both individuals were reportedly taken to the hospital with minor injuries and released.

We're thinking it was a good thing that the sunroof was either open or shattered, but it would have been an even better thing if the man were wearing his seatbelt. Scroll down to watch the video for yourself.

      Here in Mississippi, we suffer a lot of 1-car accidents, typically where the driver skids off the highway and hits a tree or rolls into a gully or bayou. I scan the articles in the local newspaper, and If there is a fatality, invariably the victim was not wearing a seatbelt. Truly, it is close to a 100 percent response function: no setabelt = fatality. There also is an odd relationship between driving 60+ mph on dark wet roads in a pickup truck or SUV and ending up in bayous.

      Darwinism misses again. Seriously, what is it about putting on a seatbelt that's so hard to do?

      And this is why we wear seatbelts.

        Personally, I find it easier to just not roll my vehicle, or not buy one with a sunroof.

      "a man and his girlfriend were having a loud argument while she was driving " and THAT is why you don't let your girlfirend drive when both of you are in the car in the same time.

      Actually, that's how he always exits the car - through an open window while it's rolling. He never quite saw the point in using the door...

      And the scores are in: 7.5... 6.9... 6.5 That landing definitely affected his score Bob. If he managed to plant on his feet he would have scored a 9.5 easy.

      Proof that God watches out for the idiots and mouth-breathers who don't wear their seatbelts.
