This Cyclist Ignored The Barrier ... And Nearly Died Hit By A Train! He's Very Lucky!
A cyclist was lucky to be alive after he careered headlong into a train travelling at 90mph. Shocking footage shows the man speed onto the tracks just as the train is approaching, ignoring the level crossing barriers and the flashing orange lights. As his front wheel touches the tracks, the high-speed train thunders past and clips his bike. Had he been half a second earlier, he would have been right in the path of the speedy locomotive and killed instantly. But instead the cyclist bounces off the side of the train, goes flying through the air and lands in a crumpled heap on the floor.
