A cyclist was taken to hospital after falling off his bicycle and into a drain after a group of wild dogs ran towards him and another cyclist along Shipyard Road on Monday (Feb 15).

Stomp contributor Jane shared with Stomp a video and photo of the incident that has been circulating online.

In the video, the two cyclists are seen cycling along the road when two dogs start running towards them.

The cyclists lose balance with one falling onto the road and the other hitting a kerb before falling into a drain by the side of the road.
