Shocked moment: trespasser has near miss with speeding train

The video shows how a pedestrian is crossing the rails in a second before the train rides. This video was filmed last December on the train tracks in Kilbarrack a residential suburb of Dublin when the Dublin to Belfast Enterprise train with the speed of 140km/h. overpassed the station. It should be shared in an attempt to stop people trespassing on train tracks.

A spokesperson for Iarnród Éireann said that Some of those trespass incidents at Kilbarrack, or someone of the 32 ‘category 1’ near misses around the network, could lead to a tragic and needless death or catastrophic injuries. Modern trains are noiseless, that can lead to the fact that people crossing the tracks with headphones or parents carrying a stroller may not even know about the approaching train. This case in the video shows what danger can be passing the railways for people. The train can not stop on the instant, therefore, look around, crossing the railway line.

More than 200 trespass incidents were captured by Iarnród Éireann during 2016 in Dublin.

This is more than just a warning to young people and to their parents to ensure they know of the risks, though this is of course critically important. The footage from Kilbarrack shows trespassers that the adults should have show example and responsibility to their children.
