Lucky dog escapes death after wandering onto rally car racetrack

There’s dumb luck, and then there’s this dog.

A car rally in Bolivia nearly turned from exciting race to a tragic event after a stray dog wandered directly onto the racetrack.

Fans attending the second stage of theEl Rally Codasur watched as the dog wandered onto the track, but there’s not much you can do to stop a speeding race car. Just as the approaching car rounds the bend, the dog heads back towards the middle of the track and it looks as if there’s no hope for the pup.

But just before the dog is struck by the car, the vehicle launches in the air and jumps over the clueless dog.

That is one lucky pup.
