Oct. 17, 2017
FAIRBORN, Ohio (AP) — Officials say two people narrowly escaped injury after attempting to record a YouTube stunt as a train approached in Ohio.
Fairborn Fire Battalion Chief Laura Kerr tells WHIO-TV one of the two was thrown to the ground Monday night when the train hit a backpack the person was wearing. Kerr says witnesses told first responders the other person was on the train tracks and rolled off at the last second as the train approached.
Kerr says the train conductors were upset by the incident, and it was lucky no one was pulled under the train.
No information has been released on whether officials will press charges against the two involved.
