However, we would like to tell you the truth behind this viral video. Well, this guy identified as Shiva from Telangana is completely safe. The video was nothing but a PRANK.
5 days after the selfie video, his friends shared one more clip in which he is seen to be totally healthy without any injury. Yes, Shiva was never hit by the train. In fact, he used some amazing graphics to make it appear like real. Fresh reports by ABN Telugu say that the entire video was planned, just to fool everyone.
