A heart stopping video has emerged online that shows a train passenger almost being decapitated on a moving vehicle whilst taking a photo.
She is egged on by her friend and sticks her head out of a window just when another train coming the other direction speeds past with the girl just missing a fatal collision.
The apparently American girl then ducks back inside of the train at the last possible second and is seen to be visibly shaken by the entire ordeal screamig, “Oh my God, Oh my God, Oh my God.”
If there had been a moment’s hesitation, from the girl then she would have surely perished in the incident. Instead, she seemed to react instinctively and fell back into the sparsely populated cabin.
Her friend can be heard to encourage her at the beginning of the footage, telling the girl to “stick her head out.”
Even though he would surely have been able to see the train blasting towards her head, he fails to warn her about the vehicle, and, after asking her if she is ok, they then burst into laughter once back inside.
The footage, which you can view below, has appeared online and has now been viewed several thousand times by people across the world who are looking to see how close she came to death.
In 2010, a woman died in the Upper East Side of New York after she attempted to retrieve her purse from the tracks whilst climbing back up to the platform.
