Cheers. Goes without saying, a spotter should stand well back at all times hence why radio communication helps and a vehicle should not approach he's/her proximity and allow them to move. it's a spotter's responsibility for their own safety as much as it is the driver. Children have been known to run in and place themselves in danger, so they have to be supervised by a separate adult.

This man was very lucky. If he had of gone under the bonnet of the rolling vehicle, this video would not have been posted here.

Way too much lift and too soft shockies .
At Heaven's gate a soldier stood,
his story ready to tell,
St Peter said, 'no need my son all is understood,
Go right in cos you've already served your time in Hell'

Horrible situation and I feel for the people involved. I am, however, happy that it is being shared and discussed...

Big lift, badly setup bump stops/shocks and Big slopes always end bad.........
