Mysterious stranger saves man's life in Turkey

CCTV footage shows the moment a man was warned of impending danger by an unexpected tap on the shoulder.
The peculiar incident, which reportedly occurred in Adana, Turkey, saw market manager Serdar Binici'yi narrowly avoid death after being alerted in advance by a complete stranger.

Binici'yi had been arranging goods outside his shop one evening when he heard someone call out to him and felt a sudden tap on his shoulder.

As he turned around to see who it was, he immediately caught sight of a large metal gate careening towards him from across the street. Instinctively he jumped back, narrowly avoiding serious injury.

When he later reviewed CCTV footage from the time of the incident however he was shocked to discover that a mysterious man had walked straight towards him and tapped him on the shoulder mere seconds before the gate was about to strike.

The stranger, it seemed, had known what was going to happen and had saved his life.

You can view the CCTV footage of the incident for yourself below.

I think it is in the same place the camera has just moved. Note the objects on the ground in relation to the placement. But that does raise questions to me on the authenticity of the reporting because that camera sure is moving a lot for a cctv stationary camera.

Saying he "saved his life" is a bit of a stretch. More than likely he would've just wound up a little sore.

Hi @Nnicolette, my take on the video is that we're viewing imagery that has been recorded from a TV screen with a hand held device (camera phone) or alike, hence the movement. As for the gate, it's definitely the tailgate on the vehicle that hasn't been closed and latched securely. Cheers Jason.

there are a few problems with this. first of all nobody was in danger. not only was the truck not speeding but even if it was it would at most be painful since it would go back to it's place from the hit. then you see the guy turn right instead of left when touched on the left shoulder. nobody does that unless they actualy expect it to be done by a friend that tries to play a trick. not sure, maybe it was an attempt to bring more people around otherwise i don't see how this made the news.

It's neat and good timing, but I don't see anything really mysterious about it. People stop bad stuff from happening all the time.
