Dmitry Medvedev nearly sends Benz SUV into crowd of supporters
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev nearly sent his SUV into a crowd of onlookers recently, when he apparently forgot to put his vehicle into park.
A video posted on YouTube see Medvedev exiting the black Mercedes-Benz ML and then quickly realizing the sport ute's still rolling forward. Body guards move in quick to stop the truck, but it doesn't stop jeers from the crowd.
The grainy video of the incident, which took place Saturday in Kazan, 700 km east of Moscow, already has nearly half-a-million views.
