An electric bike rider is in a coma after two young men set a trap on a road as a prank and he crashed into it.

The victim surnamed Zhang hit his head and was declared comatose during treatment, said authorities in Hengshui City in North China’s Hebei Province.

Footage provided by traffic police shows the suspects Zhao and Zhang - no relation to the victim - picking up a four-metre (13-foot) section of traffic barrier and pulling it into the road at 1:33am.

They lie it flat on the darkened road and leave the scene. Less than an hour later at 2:24am the e-bike rider comes into view.

He does not appear to see the fence until it is too late, crashing into it and flipping forwards off his bike.

Emergency services are understood to have been called by witnesses, but it is unclear when exactly Zhang received help.

Hengshui police said the suspects, who were described as "youths", were found and arrested 11 days later.

It is reported that the incident could yet prove fatal.

The pair admitted to putting the fence in the road, saying they wanted to "prank" unsuspecting riders.

Further investigation is under way, say police.
