This is the horric moment an elderly woman gets her leg trapped while trying to get off a bus and ends up being dragged along the road by the vehicle.

The shocking incident was caught on CCTV security cameras in the Siberian city of Angarsk in south-central Russia’s Irkutsk Oblast region.

The footage shows the 64-year-old woman, whose name has not been released, trying to get off the bus after it pulls up at a roadside bus stop.

She appears to get one foot stuck in the door and tries to turn around to free it but loses her balance when the vehicle starts to pull off.

It is clear that the driver did not see the woman's predicament as he drives on for several metres before other passengers alert him to what has happened and he hits the brakes.

The woman was lucky to escape with minor injuries and bruising from the incident. It is not reported whether she required hospital treatment.

The footage was later posted on video sharing platforms where it is proving popular with viewers.

Netizen ‘Yuriy Dubov’ said: "Such drivers should be punished in the strictest way", while ‘Ufani_O’ added: "OMG, I do not want to take busses any more. Poor person."

But ‘Sergey956’ commented unkindly: "There is a certain type of women that I want to push in the back when they start exiting public transport. So she would start moving faster, instead of looking for things in her bag."

Angarsk, which boasts the largest industrial zone in Asia, won a nationwide award for the fastest development of public utilities in 2005.
