Watch: Man has miraculous escape as speeding train smashes rickshaw on Aligarh track 

Screengrab from the video

A careless rickshaw puller in Uttar Pradesh’s Aligarh had a miraculous escape as he was crossing a railway track even though the gates of the level crossing were shut as a train was expected to pass through.

A chilling video of the incident on Twitter shows that just as the rickshaw puller is about to cross the railway track a high-speed Express train comes hurtling down. The train hits the front wheel of the rickshaw which is blown to pieces but fortunately the man is thrown backwards under the impact and falls to the ground, away from the Guwahati-Delhi Express zooming past.

The police has filed a case against the rickshaw puller for going past the shut gate at the railway crossing in violation of the law.
