Russia. Cars are just more dangerous in Russia. You might disagree with that; argue that it's just the roads of the former Soviet Union that will kill you (and to be fair, there's plenty evidence to suggest that's true). Watch this video, though. It's the cars that are the real killers.

This poor soul had - we're assuming he's lost it by now - a job at a car dealership, and was attempting to put an Audi up on a lift. The only problem with the plan is that he forgot to set the handbrake. He makes a valiant effort at saving the car, but he's ultimately unsuccessful.

You can take a look at the entire video below, and think about just how lucky this guy was that he got out of the way in time.

      My favorite part is when the car fell off the truck. All kidding aside, it was when he thought he could just reach up and stop a ton and a half of momentum with his fingers. Reflex, I guess, when he saw his job flash before his eyes, but he's lucky he wasn't smashed.

      Blame the Automatic generation. They think all they have to do is set it to Park. Those kind of people don't know **** about cars. They break cars without proper use or maintenance, then blame car makers instead of their ignorance.

      Hand brake, hand brake, brake it man, put on a lift as fast as you can. Roll it, pat it, mark it with a B. Put it on the ground for baby and me.

      Does it have anything to do with the engine mounted in front of the front axels? ; )

      Repairing it is probably going to come out of his paycheck

      I saw something very similar many years, at a VW dealer. The mechanic had put a Beetle in the air and forgot to set the brake. He then started going under the front end, to adjust the tie rods, when the car started rolling. Luckily, a few of us happened to see this at the same time, and we were able to keep the car on the rack, while he scrambled out from underneath! Gets the heart going!
