Semi-truck driver almost hits boy in Norway

One youngster walks away and initially the group appear to wait on the grass. But two of them suddenly run out behind the bus and into the road

As a group of children went rushing off a bus in Norway, a boy was almost hit.

The footage is reported to have been captured in June in west Norway, but has only just been made public.

In the beginning of the footage, a group of children can be seen getting off a school bus.

A truck driver traveling behind the bus caught the event on video.

The truck driver slammed on the brakes and missed the child by mere inches.

Bus company Brakar said their driver had dropped the children off at an approved stop but confirmed it would launch an investigation to avoid "similar unfortunate episodes in future".
