Elderly man in China jumps in front of oncoming train -- and survives

An elderly man lived to tell the tale after jumping off a railway platform straight into the path of an oncoming train at a train station in Dalian, China, last Sunday (Apr 2).

In the surveillance camera footage uploaded onto Youtube on Monday (Apr 3), the man can be seen bending down and jumping off the platform as the train approaches, horrifying fellow commuters.

Miraculously, the man managed to survive. In the footage, firefighters can be seen pulling the man out from underneath the train.

The man is now in stable condition, reported the Shanghaiist.
