So was the train full or did they just not want to buy a ticket? If they cant afford a ticket they should reconsider how they get to work.

It looks like that was intentional. I believe that sound is the body hitting the gravel. That gravel has a distinctive "crunchy" sound when something moves it.

I know this is common occurrence on those parts, but was the camera guy also clinging from the train? Cause that screams fake, if he was inside the train that was like "hay guys i have a free hand and i can film stuff so i can post it on youtube, how are you guys doing out there?"

"so people are supposed to be clinging onto the side of a train? or was that just an act of stupidity?"

The trains in Mumbai are the most crowded in the world, with more than 500 people in a 200 person car. The trains don`t even have doors.
In 2006, 3404 people were killed involving Mumbai trains.

now, you know your supposed to roll when u jump off something at high speeds
needless to say, if he didnt die hes in critical condition, not even a roll will save u there

some kid coming back from london on my tonbridge kent trainline did not have a ticket and jumped out thinking he`d avoid embarrasment or a fine. He died. Problem is your head slams into the ground when you jump out of moving vehicles even at relatively slow speeds

God, I was just waiting for him to hit one of the poles o.0

That sound effect,(Please tell me it was added in), was even worse than the idea of hitting the pole though... :(

Ooooh, that splat was not comforting.

I thought through most of the video, it was gonna be the guy in the white shirt who would fall.

I think that weird sound was him hitting the gravel or loose rocks and having them fly everywhere. That wasn`t nearly high enough to splatter him.

At least he didnt hit a pole or something. There are at lease a few fatalaties on the tracks of this kind every day.

Some people say "smart" instead of "hurt". No one knows why.

When he falls...
Is there a comical sound effect of a body exploding or is it just me?
