Bizarre clip shows cars 'levitating' in China

Several vehicles were mysteriously forced up in to the air as they approached a busy road junction.
The bizarre video, which was recorded in the city of Xingtai, captured the moment that a car was suddenly pulled violently upwards in to the air before slamming back down on to the road again.

At around the same time two other cars can also be seen experiencing the same phenomenon.

Since appearing online the video has gone viral with many Internet users speculating over what could have possibly caused the vehicles to fly up in to the air like that.

The answer, as it turns out, lies in a large steel cable that had fallen down on to the road. The truck on the right can be seen snagging the cable and pulling it tight - lifting the cars as they drove over it.

The streecleaner on the right snagged a cable of some kind and is dragging it down the street.

It's been confirmed that the cars were lifted by a fallen electrical wire or steel cable that got caught up in a passing street sweeper.

Which one was the street sweeper? The faster one to the inside? Or the one all the way to the left (our left)?

Well it's not unusual for that part of the world

Something or someone stopped the cars to prevent a possible collision with the people crossing the road. Which none of the cars were.
