A split second later, a pickup truck runs straight into the motorbike at high speed.

The impact was so great that the mangled bike was rammed some 30 feet down the road in Vila Taboca, Sao Felix do Xingu municipality, Para state, Brazil, on 30th July.

The footage ends with the dad throwing down his cap in shock and then stomping off to confront the truck driver.

As such, the incident was not reported to the police.
