Narrow escape for a family taking pictures on the railway track – watch video
New Delhi : A heart-stopping moment has been captured by a rail camera in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. In the video a family was forced to run away from a railway track in a bid to avoid a train coming on it.
The short video of what could have been a tragic accident has been shared on YouTube on Monday. According to ABC News, the rail camera is owned and operated by Virtual Railfan - the YouTube account that shared the video on YouTube.
In the two-minute video, the family was seen playing around the railway tracks. A photographer can also be seen clicking their pictures. Their photography session is interrupted, however, by an oncoming train as one of the kids yells "Here comes the train!"
In a matter of few seconds, the family was seen running here and there to find a safe spot. It also captures the terrifying moment a young child from the group struggled to get out of the tracks, before someone picked him up and sprinted away from the oncoming train.
"Please, please, please stay off the tracks and railroad property!" wrote Virtual Railfan while sharing the video.
