Man Falls of Moving Train While Making TikTok Video

Video-sharing social networking application TikTok is once again in news. This time too, it is in news for wrong reason as a 7 second video clip from this application is making rounds on the internet, wherein a man can be seen falling off a moving train.

In the video clip, a man can be seen hanging from one of the compartments of a train. Soon after, in an attempt to change the position of his feet, he loses balance and falls very near to the moving train’s wheels. He narrowly escaped being run over by the train. At the end of the clip, the man can be seen moving away from the train and indicating that he wasn’t hurt much.

This video was shared, along with a tweet by Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal’s office under the caption “performing stunts on a moving train is not an act of bravery, rather it is foolishness”. The tweet further stated that “your life is precious, so don’t put it in danger. Follow the rules and have a safe journey.”

Soon the video went viral and evoked reactions from social media users. Most of them expressed shock and demanded strict action against people attempting such stunts.

This is not the first time that TikTok content creators have crossed safety boundaries to garner views and increase followers. Earlier, in December 2019, 5 TikTok Video creators were arrested in Greater Noida for filming risky stunts on motorcycle. An extreme case of such risk taking for views on TikTok happened in June 2019 in Karnataka, when a 20 year old boy broke his neck while performing a back flip for TikTok video. The young boy passed away after few days.

It is indeed sad to know that young people these days seem to be so obsessed with their reputation on social media that they even risk their lives for likes, comments and shares.
