The Indian Railway Ministry on Tuesday has shared a horrifying TikTok video of a stunt gone wrong on a moving train. Taking to the microblogging site, the Ministry has urged citizens to follow rules and also stop others from performing such dangerous stunts.
The seven-seconds-long video, which appears to have been filmed by a passenger travelling on the train, shows a man hanging out of the doorway of the moving train. Only a second into the video, he loses his footing and falls off the train, almost getting run over as people watching the stunt scream in horror. At the end of the video, the man is sitting up as the train speeds past him and a passenger on it motions for him to stay still.
In the tweet, the Railway Ministry said, "Getting off the moving train or climbing is fatal, watch them lose their lives in the course of a stunt, but every time luck will not be with them. Please do not do this and do not let others do it too, life is priceless, do not put your life at stake in a stunt affair !!"
चलती हुई ट्रेन से उतरना- चढ़ना जानलेवा है, इन्हें देखिए स्टंट के चक्कर में अपनी जान से हाथ धो बैठते लेकिन हर बार किस्मत इनके साथ नहीं होगी।— Ministry of Railways (@RailMinIndia) February 18, 2020
कृपया ऐसा ना करें और दूसरों को भी ना करने दे, जीवन अमूल्य है स्टंट के चक्कर में अपनी जिंदगी को दांव पर ना लगाएं!! pic.twitter.com/tpyaAYJPNM
Taking to Twitter, Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal also shared the same stunt video and said, "Showing stunts in a moving train is a sign of foolishness, not bravery. Your life is priceless, do not put it in danger. Follow the rules, and enjoy the safe journey."
चलती ट्रेन में स्टंट दिखाना बहादुरी नही, मूर्खता की निशानी है। आपका जीवन अमूल्य है, इसे खतरे में ना डालें।— Piyush Goyal Office (@PiyushGoyalOffc) February 18, 2020
नियमों का पालन करें, और सुरक्षित यात्रा का आनंद लें। pic.twitter.com/tauidfOqRj
