Wearing a seat belt is one of the most important ways to reduce the risk of injury in the event of a car accident. Now, proving the same, an old video of a donkey saved by a rather unusual “seatbelt” during such an accident is gaining traction on social media.
The clip was shared on Twitter on Wednesday by user “Hasna Zaroori Hai”. The video opened to show a donkey pulling a cart and its rider down a road, when suddenly a car from behind crashed into the cart, sending the animal onto the street on its hind legs. “Gadhe ko seatbelt ne bacha liya warna car wale ne to maar diya tha (The donkey was saved by the seatbelt or else the driver of the car had killed him.)” the caption of the post read in Hindi.

The donkey was only able to stop unscathed because it was tied to the cart, making it a rather unique safety belt. At the end of the video, the animal was also seen turning around effortlessly, shocked by onlookers and its rider.
The whole incident was filmed by a CCTV camera. According to the date on the images, the incident took place in 2019. The place where it happened is not yet known.

The resurfaced video has garnered over 31,000 views and over 1,200 likes. Netizens were simply baffled by this bizarre incident. While some pointed out that even the donkey was confused at the end of the clip, others asked if the animal and its rider were okay after the incident.
“The way the donkey turned around and checked who knocked and what happened,” one wrote. “Bezubaan ka dard bhala insaan kaise samjhe? (How can a human being understand the pain of the voiceless?),” another added.Gadha to theek hai uske chalak ki haalat dekhiye (The donkey is fine, see the condition of its driver.)” the third said.
