A new video by Metrolinx shows the moment a pedestrian barely dodged death despite numerous warning symbols and a train quickly approaching.
The video, part of the “close call” series, tries to educated the public about the dangers of taking selfies on or crossing railway tracks.
“Pay attention to your surroundings and never cross when the gate arms are down,” the video description reads.
“You know that feeling in your belly
when you have to brake suddenly to avoid an accident? The nervous,
wow-that-was-too-close sensation that lasts for several minutes?”
Metrolinx wrote on its blog.
“Somewhere, there’s a person who should still be living with that unease in the belly months after ignoring warning signals and coming within inches of being struck by a GO train.”
