The oncoming truck driver even blared his horn in an attempt to warn the youth.
In a video gone viral on social media, a Saudi teenager risked his life by jumping in front of a speeding truck.
He had asked a friend to film him along a busy highway in Saudi Arabia, reported sources in Arab media.
They had parked a saloon car on the side of the road, and had been filming the youth dancing on the boot of the car to some music.
After spotting the heavy truck, he leapt from the car into the barreling vehicle's path.
The oncoming truck driver even blared his horn in an attempt to warn the youth to get out of the way, who barely dodged the truck in time.
Critics on social media demanded the youth be found and punished for his reckless behaviour.
