He dashes across railway track, almost gets run over

Most people know better than to fool around on a train track but some have to learn the hard way.

A man was taught a lesson he'll never forget when he was almost run over by an oncoming train at Littlehaven Station in Sussex, England.

CCTV footage released by Network Rail shows the man getting off his bicycle and dashing across the track to the opposite platform.

The incident took place in 2011 but the company released the video only on Thursday (May 14) to warn railway line trespassers.




In the video, the man takes a tumble just a couple of seconds later but manages to crawl underneath the platform before a train zooms past.

According to Mail Online, he was jailed four months, suspended for 12 months and ordered to carry out 120 hours of unpaid work.
