Teenage boys lie down in front of speeding TRAIN in deadly stunt to get YouTube views Railway chiefs have warned the teens face fines of hundreds of pounds for the deadly stunt A terrifying video has emerged showing two teenage boys risking their lives by lying down in front of a speeding TRAIN and staying there as the vehicles thunders over them. The horrifying stunt was performed in an apparent bid to get ‘likes’ on social media sites. Railway chiefs in the Czech republic, where the dangerous act took place, have slammed the pair saying they could have died if the train had been travelling faster. The frightening film, now deleted from social media, shows the boys running onto a railway track and lying down on the sleepers between the rails. Seconds later, a train speeds over them, the driver blaring his horn as he is unable to stop in time. The teens survive the reckless stunt and can be seen leaping up and running off as soon as the train has passed.

Martin Drapal from the Railway Inspection told local media the boys did not realise how dangerous their behaviour was. Explaining how narrowly they survived, he said: "There’s a danger that the wind created by the coming train can raise the clothes. The clothes can catch underneath the train. If the train goes at 60 to 70 kph (37 to 43 mph) it can be fatal." Czech Railways is now searching for the pair who risked their lives. Marek Ilias, a spokesman for the Railway Infrastructure Administration, told Czech media: "They broke the law and may be fined." The fine can be anything from 2,000 to 10,000 CZK, the equivalent of £65 GBP to £325
