Incredible moment ox cart flips over during village race, sending rider flying

A rider emerged unscathed after his ox cart flew into air and flipped over during a village race.

The man was thrown to the ground, but he sprung back to his feet and tried to control the animals, which were also unhurt.

The incident occurred at a village near Arakalavadi in the Hassan district of southern India's Karnataka state on April 13.

“The animals got scared by the noise of the crowd and went out of control. Luckily no one was hurt,” said Lokesh Gowda, a local resident.
