How far would you go for an adrenaline rush? Can you cross any limit to pull off a dangerous stunt and record it on your camera? Well, it seems like some people would go to any heights for a few seconds of their claim to fame — as was seen in the Hyderabad student selfie case in which he got hit by the oncoming train. In another such distressing incident, a Kashmiri man put his life at risk all for just a moment of thrill.
In a 0.39-second video that has gone viral on Twitter, the man can be seen lying on the train tracks only to let the train pass above him, and be victorious without a scratch. After watching the clip, Twitterati didn’t spare the man and lambasted him for his foolish stunt, as well as the person who captured the entire fiasco on his mobile phone.
Former J&K CM Omar Abdullah also took to Twitter to share the heart-stopping stunt and wrote: “There is something drastically wrong with this sort of adventure seeking. I can’t believe the stupidity of these young men.” Soon, many others joined him and raised their voice against the risky act.

Oh my goodness!! His pheran was flapping as the train went over. What if it had got caught in something?! Silly boys think they’re invincible.

Einstein was spot on when he said about the infiniteness of human stupidity :-)

You’d think there were enough challenges in Kashmir (assuming its Kashmir)

Everyone needs external validation sir, everyone does something or try to, to gain that ! Put them to a bigger cause. It is a failure of our leadership that youth has to do all these to earn validations from peers

Meanwhile, a few others took to Twitter to poke fun at him with funny tweets.
It’s all fun and games until someone on the train uses the loo.
