Scooter rider falls down manhole

A scooter rider has been caught on camera falling off his vehicle - and then sliding straight into an open manhole.

The slapstick accident, filmed on a police vehicle's dashboard camera, happened after the scooter rider tried to overtake the car at a junction.

He loses balance after clipping the right wing mirror of the car, goes into a skid, comes off his scooter and falls down the hole.

The accident was filmed in Taiwan and has been viewed more than 30,000 times since it was uploaded to YouTube.

The rider luckily escaped with just a few minor injuries.
