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 !!"
