Recommended Posts

In Garmisch-Partenkirchen, southern Germany, a 28 year old idiot laid between the tracks and allowed a regional express train run over him. A shocked train driver immediately stopped the train to make sure that he did not injure the man. When questioned by police, the man explained that he was doing a "braveness challenge". In an official statement, the police says that laying yourself on the track to let a train drive over you is "pure idiocy", and is investigating the matter.

They do realise that you're supposed to put the camera on the sleepers and then get out of the way when trying to film that angle?

 

Seen it on Eisenbahn Romantik a few times, suspect they use their oldest action camera and it's agreed with the train crew beforehand!

Probably, it‘s a German production so they are as cautious as possible about everything in such regards 😄
