Close one: Ukrainian girl has lucky escape from explosive debris

She walked away, seemingly unharmed.

A YOUNG UKRAINIAN girl cheated death earlier this week after avoiding falling debris in Ukraine.

The incident unfolded at Donbass Arena in Donetsk after it was hit by artillery fire.

In CCTV footage, a piece of the stadium’s wall is seen landing just inches from her.

Seriously, it was *this* close.
