This is the shocking moment a gas truck driver avoided catastrophe after his vehicle started driving off without him.
CCTV shows the worker running in front of the out-of-control lorry to get back behind the wheel and stop it rolling off a cliff.
The footage was recorded in Ibirite, near Belo Horizonte in southern Brazil.
The video begins after the man has finished loading his stake bed truck full of gas canisters from a local depot.
It appears he had left the truck running while he went to carry out a few last-minute checks before heading off.
Suddenly the truck jerks forwards and starts rolling towards the street without him.

The driver narrowly misses being hit as he runs back around to the driver’s side before prizing open the door and grabbing for the wheel.
His quick actions stop the vehicle from knocking into a neighbour’s wall, but puts the truck on path to fall over a cliff.
Colleagues from the gas depot run outside to help but luckily the worker is able to get back into the cab and bring the truck to a halt.
