Google Maps Street View has captured a boy performing a very risky stunt on a coastal road.
He is lying on a skateboard and rolling down the hill without a care for the traffic around him.
Behind him is a tight bend as the road winds around a mountain and a car has come into view.
The boy is right in the middle of the road and is looking forward at the decline below rather than behind.
Google Maps Street View: Boy attempts VERY risky activity - what do you think happened next?
The worst case scenario here could be a very nasty accident indeed between the oncoming car and the reckless youth.
It seems he is too young to realise quite how dangerous his activity is as he rolls down the road.
He has no method of braking as he lies back on the board and would likely be unable to move out of the way at any speed.
The boy is also at risk at oncoming cars in the opposite lane as he can have no real way of steering.
He is completely at the mercy of the sloping hill and the whim of the skateboard itself.
If he managed to hurl himself out of the path of a car in time there is grass to one side.
