Lucky rider leaves bike, manages to escape being crushed under moving train at level-crossing in northern India
A rider escaped death as his bike was crushed by a speeding train in northern India’s Uttar Pradesh.
The incident, which was captured on CCTV cameras, took place on February 12 near the Acchalda railway station in Auraiya district.
Visuals showed the rider crossing a level-crossing when he realises that a train is approaching from his left. He soon gets down, just in time, and moves away as the speeding vehicle runs over his motorcycle, tearing it into a few pieces. The rider is seen walking away gingerly.
Had the rider waited a second more, he may not have been able to make it alive.
