Hollywood could not have scripted a Brazilian cyclist's escape from serious injury any better.

Footage from a security camera in Foz do Iguaçu, Parana, shows a cyclist being knocked off his bicycle by a passing truck.

In the split second following the incident, a mattress flies from the truck and slides underneath the cyclist, cushioning his fall.

The video clip contains no other information on the remarkable escape but from the footage the cyclist appears uninjured although the same could not be said for bicycle.
