The man sticks his umbrella out toward the bus, but the end of it gets caught in the door and he is dragged down the street.

He can be seen flipping forward and going under the wheels before the bus comes to a stop.

The footage was first posted on Weibo in April by the man’s granddaughter, who said the incident left him in a wheelchair.
