A group of children leaving their school bus in Norway had a dangerous encounter that was too close for comfort.

In a video obtained by NBC, a boy ran straight into the path of an oncoming truck emerging from behind the bus.

The alert truck driver slammed on the breaks, barely missing the boy and preventing a tragedy.

The video was captured by a dashboard camera in a truck waiting behind the bus in southern Norway over the summer.
