Recently a video of a car accident made “Brother Tricycle” popular on the Internet. On May 9, 2010, a traffic video camera captured a deadly car accident in Beijing. A fast moving black car hits a white car in front waiting on the red light in an intersection. One dead and two injured, but amazingly a man riding a tricycle through the tragic accident was able to escape without a scratch. So netizens called him “Brother Tricycle” (三轮哥).
Since then another equally or more amazing video showed up on the internet. Brother Running (奔跑哥) is this guy crossing the street, when suddenly a bus failed to stop at the red light . In the nick of time he was able to speed up by taking longer strides with his long legs and ran to safety, hence the name Brother Running.
Even crazier, Brother Train (火车哥) was racing against the train. A railway inspector was working on a train track, when suddenly the train roaring through the track. He leaped backwards onto the nearby track and was able to avoid the train. But he was not done yet, at the same time another train drove by from opposite direction on the track he landed on. He quickly got up and jumped again to safety. (editor’s note: I have seen the video of Brother Train on youtube before, not sure if this happened in China or even if is real.)
