Container Truck Hangs Over Edge of 330-Foot Cliff in China After Driver Followed Sat-nav Up Narrow Mountain Road

The front wheel of the truck slipped over the edge of a cliff near the city of Changzhi in Shanxi Province in northern China after the driver attempted to reverse

Nail-biting footage shows just how close a truck came to plunging off a 330ft cliff in China after the driver followed his sat nav up a narrow mountain road.

The incident happened on January 1 near the city of Changzhi in Shanxi Province in northern China.

Local officials said the driver continued along the narrow mountain road because he was following the directions on his sat nav.

However, as the road became increasingly narrow the driver decided to go back down the mountain, but was unable to turn his truck.

Instead, he began reversing the lorry, edging between the rock face on one side and a steep cliff on the other.
