If the train had actually hit him then his battered bloodied body would have struck the camera person taking this video footage and injured or killed them too.

Shame the camera was panned away from the action just at the most interesting moment. I can understand the flinch reflex but it spoiled the footage all the same.

"I really dont get this video. What is so special? He was not on the train track at all. He was just next to the tracks. Sure a train later zoom by him. But how was that anything special?"

It`s the same kind of special as a negative pregnancy test after a broken condom.

But you wouldn`t know anything about that. Your parents weren`t so lucky.

I would freak out on the chick with the camera. REALLY? A subtle "you-hoo" is your best warning? It`s not peek-a-boo bitch!

I suppose the only real luck the guy had was that the huge vaccuum the train creates didn`t suck him into it while it was moving. That also happens sometimes.

He didn`t really react much.
"Oh, did I almost die? Well, I say, that would have been rather inconvienent."

Stupid drating people...

BTW
"wow.... guy must be deaf." You cannot hear a train that is behind you until it is literally on you; they move too fast. Same concept with jets... go to an airshow... you`ll see what I am talking about.

I like how the guy filming just casually tries to get his attention by saying `yooh hoo` rather than `WATCH THE F@#K OUT!`
