This latest near-miss with a train seems even more unbelievable than the head kicking extreme selfie we posted last week.


EXTREME SELFIE: The head-kick seen 'round the world


Close to 50 percent of Weather Network fans voted that the extreme selfie was fake and the same may be the case with this next train survival story from Czech Republic.

The YouTube video which shows a 77-year-old man being clipped by a train has already picked up close to 500,000 views.

"Haunted man in Rájec Jestrebi ignored downloaded barriers and red lights and crossed the tracks. He was very lucky. Passing express it "only" dropped. (Source: Police)," the video's description reads.

Cars are seen stopped on either side of the barriers, but the man still decides to walk across the tracks.

He is then shown falling to the ground with his shoe flying several feet in the air. 

The barriers are raised seconds after and cars continue on their journey.
