Riley Bester of Prior Lake Minnesota is lucky to be alive after a runaway snowmobile was headed right towards him at top speed after a stunt went wrong at the X-Games in Aspen Colorado.

Riley and his dad were among hundreds of spectators lining a snow fence along the course watching the action, when a stunt racer flipped and crashed with his snowmobile landing right side up with a stuck clutch, thrusting the sled towards the crowd.

Thankfully the snow fence caught the snowmobile, but Rileys quick reaction and help from his dad got him out of harms way in the nick of time. Riley only had a bump on his knee from running into a truck, but by all accounts he is one lucky guy.
