Defying Death

A 17-year-old man surnamed Lin, riding without a license or helmet, made a blind turn and got hit by a car approaching from the opposite direction.

He landed in an inflatable paddling swimming pool at the road side, which saved his life. Lin was fined more than US$200 for riding without a helmet or license, and for making an illegal turn.

The car driver also received a penalty for driving without due care and attention.
