An unconfirmed video shows a Belgian soldier falling out of a van and being dragged for several meters during a contact reaction training exercise.
The event reportedly took place at a training camp in Wallonia, southern Belgium‘s French-speaking region.
The troops can be seen sliding open the van door in an attempt to return fire during a mock ambush drill. The soldier slides to the edge of the seat, and his momentum takes him the rest of the way.
Apparently his belt was still attached to the vehicle, and you can hear his body being dragged as the van continues driving for several more meters while his buddies scream for the driver to stop.
The soldier was reportedly only slightly injured, and has since returned to duty.
