Found this on Facebook. The guy is okay, just some cuts and bruises, though his ego and pride probably took a big hit.

He's lucky he didn't get killed! Can't imagine what he was thinking.. I thought sure he was at least going to break his leg! You have to wonder why someone covered the camera lens though??? It appeared he rolled into his truck in the last frame. Way to much thinking on my end!

The log he had strapped to the rear tire is what pushed him into the truck at the end.

From what I have read, this is the slow motion version of this incident. It happened a bit quicker in real time.

Here is the normal time version.

I'm curious about the very end, which I didn't notice at first. It seems he gets caught in something and pulled up under the truck. What did he get caught in that pulled him that forcefully?

I don't understand why he was trying to drive forward while strapped to the truck?

It looks like the end of the log as it comes around pushes him towards the truck.

Now that the logged up wheels are free they just keep turning.

Having the line tied to the truck is what makes him flip over. Otherwise the tractor might have walked its way out.

How about doing something (besides praying) to try and save your skin when everything starts going south.

Seen the same trick done successfully but it was fence posts on a green tractor. You resort to this before the tire is 1/2 buried. Otherwise you need a crane.

From what I figure, the truck was stuck and he was trying to pull the truck out from wherever it was.

I can see the truck is buried, after watching it a second time.

Now I have an even harder time understanding this, using a tractor that's buried to pull out a truck that's buried and the truck tires weren't spinning so he wasn't getting any help.

i believe the log he strapped to the wheel came around again-and pushed him in under neath his truck farther . very-very lucky. it could of ended a lot worse for him.
