Guwahati: A terrifiying accident was caught on camera which was later shared by the Union ministry of railways itself as it wanted to deter people from doing such dangerous acts while travelling in a train.
In the 7-second video clip, it can be seen that a man accidentally falls off a running train while trying to do some stunts for a TikTok video. He, however, escapes death by a whisker as eventually stands up and appears to be unhurt after he loses balance and tumbles on the rail tracks.
The ministry shared the video on its Twitter handle and said boarding or de-boarding from a running rain is life-threatening.
Railway minister Piyush Goyal also posted the video on Twitter. “Showing stunts in a moving train is a sign of cowardice, not bravery. Your life is priceless, do not put it in danger. Follow the rules, and enjoy the safe journey,” he wrote.
