Indian boy hit by train while taking selfie video on railway track
HYDERABAD: An Indian boy suffered serious injuries after he was hit by a train while shooting a selfie video alongside the railway tracks.
According to Financial Express, the incident reportedly took place near the Bharatnagar railway station in Hyderabad three days ago but came to light on Wednesday when the selfie video went viral on social media.
In this video, the boy, identified as Shiva, can be seen standing near the railway track holding his smartphone as train approaches from behind him.
Just as the train passes him, Shiva appears to have been caught by the train even as his friends were shouting, asking him to step aside.
The personnel of the Railway Protection Force rushed to the spot and shifted him to a private hospital where his condition is now said to be stable, police said. However, this incident comes as a reminder for the youngsters.
