    Haha yeah I couldn't believe it when I watched the footage. I've been back since to have a look and those cables are pretty close together, very lucky indeed.
    I'll let you know if I come right with the lotto :)

    I would willingly assemble a near-miss compilation, as I am sure that almost anyone had at least few ;)
    If interested, help me by sending a vid ;)

    **** lol.. That has to be the closest call I've ever seen. I have no idea how you slipped between those lines. The clearance just doesn't seem to be there. Thanks for the cool video.
