This 77-Year Old Man Narrowly Escaped Death From An Oncoming Train

A man in the Czech Republic narrowly escaped death by rushing through a rail track just seconds before an oncoming train flew right past him. The 77-year-old man is seen on CCTV walking through the rail track even though the barriers were down which meant he wasn't supposed to be crossing the track at that moment.

As the old man tries to get to the other side of the track, he miscalculated his timing as a passing train nearly hit him. His shoe got clipped by the train and it was sent flying through the air. The man was then able to stand up and walk away without any serious injuries. The footage was released by the Czech police.
