    Some last minute defense spared this passerby a few scrapes and scratches!

    Recent surveillance footage from Pskov, Russia, features one seemingly distracted pedestrian who probably won't be wearing headphones for a while after this particular incident.

    Strolling along the sidewalk with his head down, the unidentified man is only able to brace for impact with an arm lift before a tree falls and traps him within its branches.

    Thankfully, he quickly gets up seconds later and eventually receives a little assistance from some people passing by.
