RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- A pedestrian in Saudi Arabia narrowly escaped serious injury or death when he was grazed by a large pane of glass that fell from a sixth story window.

The video, posted to YouTube by the Almadaen newspaper, shows a man walking down a street in what is believed to be Riyadh and stopping for a moment to adjust his shoe.

The man's shoe adjustment moves him slightly to his right on the sidewalk as he continues walking and the glass pane falls from the sixth floor and strikes him on the left side of his body.

The pedestrian is knocked to the ground and his head covering is removed by the impact, but he does not appear to be severely injured.

The man retrieves his head covering and walks back in the direction he came from.
