New Delhi (Sputnik) — The viral video, the origin of which has been traced to the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, starts with visuals of a speeding train and then pans to a man lying on the tracks. Moments later, the speeding train runs over the man as his friends, probably shooting the video, laugh with excitement. As the train passes, the man gets up unhurt to be embraced by his cheering friends.
WARNING: The following footage can offend sensibilities.
The stunt did not cost the daredevil his life, but he almost lost his freedom, with the internet calling for his arrest for the "reckless" behavior.
