The driver of this truck had a miraculous survival after his vehicle was left dangling precariously from a tall bridge.

Local media in Buenos Aires, Argentina, reported the driver lost control of the truck - loaded with rolls of paper - when he fell asleep.

The HGV then smashed through railings on one side of the bridge and appeared to be inches from falling off.
