A man had a narrow escape after he got stuck between the platform and railway tracks even as a train went hurtling past Asangaon station in Maharashtra.
The incident, which happened on June 25, was caught on camera by a passerby. The man, according to news agency ANI, tried to cross the tracks despite an oncoming train.
In the video, passengers waiting on the platform can be seen rushing towards the tracks to see if the man had survived. The man, who was wearing a blue shirt and grey trousers, nonchalantly gets up and walks away as if nothing had happened.
