LOPBURI, Thailand, May 4 (UPI) -- A Thailand motorist's dashboard camera captured a motorcyclist's lucky landing when a mattress fell off a truck and broke his fall.

Vijit Sooksai posted a video to Facebook showing his dashboard camera footage from an April 25 drive in Lopburi, Thailand.

The video shows a pickup truck carrying a mattress driving in front of a motorcyclist riding on the side of the street.

The mattress falls from the truck and knocks the motorcyclist off his vehicle, while also breaking his fall.

The truck continues to drive away, with the driver apparently unaware that a mattress had fallen.

Sooksai, who pulled over to the side of the road after the incident, said the motorcyclist was not injured.
