The video shows the man walking into a gym and chatting with another person when, suddenly, the ceiling fan above him comes hurtling down — barely missing him.

The man makes a lucky escape, as the fan crashes just behind him.

“While exercising, the ceiling fan fell close to the body,” he was quoted as saying by ViralHog.

“Luckily, the propeller did not cut my head and body.”

There were many responses to the YouTube video, expressing horror at having something similar happen to them.
