Carlopolis, Brazil (NBC) - There were some frightening moments for a truck driver in southern Brazil Saturday when his truck skidded over a guardrail and was left hanging off a bridge.

A local news website shot video as the truck dangled over the water below. Reports say the driver lost control after a car suddenly stopped in front of him.

The truck wasn't carrying any cargo at the time and was crossing a bridge connecting the States of Parana and Sao Paulo.

People passing by used a rope to rescue the driver from the truck approximately 25 minutes after the accident.
