A video of a man in UP escaping just seconds before being hit by a train has gone viral on social media. The biker was seen crossing the tracks with a few other motorists and pedestrians even as another train was running on a parallel track.

When the man was halfway across the tracks, his bike got stuck. With the train approaching, the man was seen desperately tried to pull the bike to safety before abandoning it at the last second and rushing to safety.

In the clip, the biker could be seen riding over the railway tracks before stopping abruptly after noticing the approaching train, ditching his vehicle at the last moment to make a run for his life. The man also appeared to have sustained injuries from the incident.
