    I see a Darwin Award in his future.

    I also think it may be an idea to just take this kid to one side and have him quietly put to sleep so he can't traumatise train drivers or present a hazard to anyone with a brain.

    The video was gotten rid of, but I heard in Africa, train jumping, diving and surfing was becoming more and more popular.

    that dude is a freakin' idiot !!
    at the speed that train was going ,
    there wouldn't be much left of him to bury, if it had actually hit him ...

    Just saw the video...too bad his timing was off. If only he would have waited just a little longer.

    That's not the worst part. He had to cross another set of tracks to perform that stupid stunt. Now imagine if, while his concentration is entirely on dodging train #1, train #2 going the other way on the other track comes along...

    Believe it or not, this happens OFTEN. Idiots will stand on one track, waiting for a train (often a slow freighter) on another track to pass, only to get hit by another high speed train coming in the other direction on the very track they're standing on.

    When I was in 6th grade, a schoolmate of mine died in this exact scenario, walking to school. It hit home, because we ALL used to cross where it happened.

    Has this sort of thing been done on Jackass? It wouldn't surprise me if it had been.

    I doubt it. A train engineer could sue for emotional distress...and he'd win.

    He should sue and it should be illegal. While it's unlikely that the train could derail after hitting him, it's still an object on the tracks.

    The impact knocked one of his shoes off and probably broke an elbow, fractured vertebrae, gave him a concussion. What the hell did he think would happen? Did he think he'd just roll up and over the top of the car and land on his feet?

    Sure. That's what happens in movies and cartoons :)

  19. I like how the cameraman walks over to the car to check it out before he checks too much on his friend...

    Jumping in front of trains? C'mon. 10 minutes ago I just saw a car try to squeeze through lowering arms across tracks and he broke it right off. But he made the light and was spared 2 minutes. Good.

    Really? I wouldn't expect anything like that from the Jackass dudes. I doubt they'd mess with lives.
