Lucky escape: Indian biker narrowly avoids being smashed by oncoming train
A biker in northern India had a very lucky escape last week when he managed to avoid being crushed by an oncoming train.
CCTV footage filmed on January 24 in Bharwari in the state of Uttar Pradesh shows commuters using a level crossing.
A biker pulls up but loses control of his vehicle which falls to the ground right beside the tracks.
He wisely decides not to pick up the bike and a split-second later a train speeds past, crushing the bike under its wheels.
