Man attempts selfie with approaching train; gets hit; did he survive??
Definitely not something one should have done but a 25-year-old man from Warangal dared to attempt a selfie with an approaching train and got hit as well.
Though the man survived, sources informed, but he has now been booked under relevant laws.
The man was attempting the stunt when an MMTS train in the city was approaching.
The video of the incident, attributed to recklessness by authorities, was captured on man identified as T. Siva’s phone and shows him standing in the foreground of an approaching MMTS train near Borabanda MMTS Railway Station.
Despite an audible warning from a person nearby and the train’s locomotive pilot blaring the horn, Siva does not budge and is even unmindful of his proximity to the oncoming train. The phone falls to the ground as the train rams him.
Despite the seemingly severe impact of the collision, Siva survived the accident with minor injuries, it was informed later by the Railway officials.
The South Central Railway issued a press release wherein it was claimed that Siva had persisted on capturing the video despite a home guard warning him about the approaching the train. The home guard then produced him before the Railway Police after the collision.>
