Man and four-wheeler sent tumbling by force of plane’s jets

SKIATHOS, Greece, Sept. 20 (UPI) — A quad bike rider in Greece learned the importance of heeding warning signs when he and his four-wheeler were blasted toward the sea water by a Boeing 757.

The video shows spectators watching the plane preparing to take off at Greece’s Skiathos Island National Airport, near a sign reading, “Danger: Please keep away from aircraft blast.”

One unlucky bystander apparently missed the sign’s message and ends up behind the plane with his quad bike when the engines begin to fire.

The man and his vehicle are seen being blown backward by the force of the jets.

The man is able to regain his balance, but the quad bike tumbles toward the sea, appearing to come to a stop just short of the water.
