These inspiring scenes show the moment hordes of shocked onlookers lifted a bus to free an elderly man trapped underneath.

The man in his 70s became lodged underneath one of the vehicle's wheels and more than 20 motorists and pedestrians desperately tried to save the victim.

According to witnesses, he was cycling in front of the number 823 bus when he was knocked over and run over by one of the wheels in east China’s Fujian province.

Half the man’s body was trapped under the heavy bus while the rest of his body remained free.

Instead of asking the bus driver to reverse off the man, which may have caused further injuries, the police the citizen heroes banded together and pushed the bus off its wheel.

They made enough room for the man to be pulled out from under the bus and he was later carried onto an ambulance and treated for his injuries.
