Man in Australia cheats death in train near miss
Wednesday 18 September 2013
A man in Australia has narrowly avoided getting hit by a train while he was crossing over the tracks.
CCTV footage released by Queensland Rail shows the man jumping out of the way of an oncoming express train in Brisbane.
The man can be seen waiting for one train to pass before opening the safety gate and walking across the tracks. However, he suddenly spots another train steaming towards him from the opposite direction and leaps to one side.
As he darts out of the way it appears he is knocked to the ground by the rush of wind from the oncoming train which was travelling at 60km an hour.
The 20-year-old man was reported to have only sustained minor injuries from the incident and received a fine of over £1,200.
Queensland's Transport Minister Scott Emerson said: "The message has to get out there that people are playing Russian Roulette with their lives and they will lose."
