This is the moment a man jumped on top of a parked car to escape an aggressive dog, only to realize there was someone sitting inside it.
Destyni Jefferson, a hairstylist from St Louis, Missouri, was in her car outside her house when a man jumped on the roof to flee from a neighbor’s German Shepherd.
CCTV shows her honking her horn as the man scrambles on top, one of his bags falling down as he evades the dog. It scurries away at the noise.
‘When I saw the dog running after him, then I understood why he was on my roof,’ Jefferson said afterwards.
The man is filmed apologizing to Jefferson before sliding cautiously off the roof as the dog walks back to a front yard across the street.

Leap of faith! The man fleeing the dog jumps up on the roof of a stranger’s car for safety
‘I’m so sorry,’ he says. She dismisses his apology as she rolls down her window and says ‘you good, I saw that motherf****er this morning!’.
The clip starts with the man walking calmly past a house across the street.
Loud barking can be heard as the dog runs after him and he breaks out into a sprint before seeking refuge on top of the car.
