It’s hard not to take it as a bad omen when a wall collapses next to you when you’re walking to an exam.
But that’s what happened to 17-year-old British boy Ryan Puttick last week.
Ryan was walking to the train station in Christchurch, Dorset, when the upper wall of a brick house collapsed.
The bricks battered a parked car and spilled out across the road.
But Ryan didn’t break his stride, walking through the bricks even as they were in motion.
“I know the video looks like I was fine, like it was a normal thing, but inside I was really, really nervous, really shook up,” he told the BBC.
He was focused on getting on his train so he could get to his exam on time.
The hair-raising moment was captured by a doorbell camera across the road.
Nobody was hurt by the wall collapse.
