Dangerous train game – level 3

Dangerous train game – level 3

29-07-2016 07:00

Dodging death, these daredevil teenagers in India have taken childish games to a dangerous new level, narrowly avoiding being run over by a high-speed train in their path.

This amateur video shows how these railway tracks in the northern Uttar Pradesh province have become a deadly playground.

The seven boys are seen waiting on the tracks as the train steams on at full speed before jumping off the bridge into a river with just seconds to spare.

Swimming down the stream, no doubt spurred on by adrenalin, these boys were lucky to have made it to the other side. 

Difficult words: dodging (move quickly in order not to be hit), daredevil (somebody who likes to do dangerous activities), avoid (prevent something bad from happening), steam on (go very fast), seconds to spare (seconds before something happens), spur on (motivated by), adrenalin (a chemical in your body that makes you think and move very fast).
