This was the dramatic moment a farmer was inches from being killed after an out-of-control motorbike skidded at him.

The farmer was seen on CCTV standing next to his tractor after filling up at an LPG gas station in Lopburi, Thailand.

The motorcyclist crashed around 25 meters away and came skidding towards him on the side of his bike.

But the quick-thinkinkg farmed showed lightning fast reflexes and leapt out of the path of the bike, which clips his foot.

The man's shoe can even be seen flying up in the air after being knocked off by the bike.

CCTV footage shows the motorbike and rider come to a stop after skidding into a drainage pool on the other side of the walkway that the farmer was standing on.

The motorcyclist survive and was taken to hospital where he was treated for his injuries.

Shop owner Sompong Dawong, who lives opposite where the crash happened, said: ‘’The old man was lucky. Be careful when you’re riding a motorcycle, accidents happen.

‘’The clip was from outside the LPG gas pump station. The man is a local farmer and he had refilled his tractor.

‘’Both of them are OK and the motorcycle rider survived but he is still in hospital.''
