Mumbai train

Mumbai, June 24: A horrific video of a young train commuter hitting a pole and being flung off the tracks between Kalwa and Thane emerged.

Thankfully, the 19-year-old victim had a miraculous escape and didn’t sustain any head injuries, though he landed in the hospital with multiple fractures.

Several accidents of passengers while traveling by Mumbai local trains are reported every month. While some are unavoidable, others can be avoided, and this was one of them.

Danish Khan was traveling on the footboard and hanging out of the train, watching some others on the train on the parallel track shoot a video.

While doing so, he hit a pole and was thrown off, with commuters from both trains watching in horror. Some of them even thought that he succumbed owing to the hit.
