Man Barely Survives Trying to Cross Train Tracks Caught on Video

A guy in Victoria, Australia, tried to run across train tracks and miraculously survived after a very close call.

He walks to the edge of the platform just as one train is pulling out of the station, then jumps onto the tracks as ANOTHER train is pulling IN to the station. He finally realizes this is a terrible idea, and BARELY misses being hit by the train as he runs to avoid it.

He totally saw it and you can tell because he does the little wave move you do when you want to cut in front of someone but still want to try to be polite about it. You can only do that when the other thing isn't a train.

Sky News says the conductor did hit the breaks but there's no way he would've stopped in time. The man hasn't been identified yet but he's the 143rd person in 12 months to pull a stunt like this.

The CEO of the Victoria Line was forced to release a statement saying "the rail environment is not a playground" and reminding everyone to "always look both ways" and "cross railway lines only at marked crossings."
