This Is Why You Don’t Take Selfies Near A Train [Video]

kicked in the head

Have you ever wondered why they tell you to stay behind that big yellow line next to the train track? Sure, it’s to keep you from getting hit by a train but it’s also to keep you from getting kicked in the head by a train conductor.

Jared Michael uploaded a video to YouTube this week showing himself taking a selfie next to a train track. Michael says that he was a “safe distance” from the track but apparently he wasn’t out of reach of the conductor’s foot.

Michael writes: “I tried to take a selfie while a train passed a “safe” distance behind. I guess I was still too close and got kicked in the head. I messed up.”

It’s kind of hard to see in the video so let’s slow it down a bit. Yep, that’s definitely a boot to the face.

So kids, next time you’re taking a selfie make sure that you are in a safe place. Make sure that you aren’t going to get hit by a train and make sure that the train conductor doesn’t have on steel toe boots.
