This is the nerve-wracking moment a truck crosses a narrow bridge in Russia, with just inches spare and no safety railing.
Footage from May 10 shows the truck driving across the bridge which spans the Vitim River in Zabaykalsky Krai, Russia.
The Kuandinsky Bridge forces drivers to navigate a tiny six-foot-wide path, which is barely wide enough to fit a car.
The bridge has no safety railing to stop cars and trucks from plummeting into the frozen water below, so one wrong move could be fatal. © Provided by Daily MailFootage from May 10 shows the truck driving across the bridge which spans the Vitim River in Zabaykalsky Krai, Russia

But this driver proved their impeccable driving skills, navigating the tricky bridge without appearing to find themselves in a spot of bother.
The metal structure, which at points in the clip looks rusted, is topped with slats of decaying wood, which become slippery when covered with ice or snow.

- Indian hospital encourages patients to plant trees after being discharged A hospital in central India's Madhya Pradesh takes its responsibility for life unusually broadly, encouraging discharged patients to plant trees. The Om Ayurvedic Medical College and Hospital (OAMCH) in Betul was converted into a Covid-19 facility recently, to help deal with the surge in numbers of coronavirus patients. Video shot on 14 May shows staff giving saplings to discharged patients, who then plant them in the herbal garden in the hospital grounds. The hospital also encourages them to plant trees at home too. The hospital started this initiative to motivate patients to acknowledge the importance of oxygen and nature. Five discharged patients planted trees on the first day of the initiative. The hospital's Covid-19 treatment treatment is given free of cost and includes Ayurvedic treatment and music therapy along with Allopathic medicines. The centre has managed 240 patients in 38 days.

But the terrifying condition of the bridge isn't enough to deter one driver from braving the journey.

There are just inches between the truck's wheels and the edge of the rotten wooden slats, with water and ice below.
To make it more difficult, the edge of the bridge isn't straight, with some wooden slats jutting out further than others.
This means that sometimes the driver becomes closer to the edge than before.
The bridge runs parallel to a railway bridge and is situated in the Trans-Baikal region.
It forms part of the notorious BAM road and is described as one of the world's toughest adventure routes by the Dangerous Roads website. © Provided by Daily MailTo make it more difficult, the edge of the bridge isn't straight, with some wooden slats jutting out further than others
