A video of passengers getting off a train in the middle of nowhere and crossing the tracks holding their luggage is widely circulating on the internet.
In the stunning video, another train’s horn can be heard and people can be seen rushing across the track. A passenger even warns them of the approach of the train. As this train approaches, a woman crosses the track, puts her bag on the other side and returns to her family on the other side. We then see her sitting near a man and two others as the train passes.

However, two users said in the comments section that the incident happened in Whitefield, Bengaluru. Many others were shocked by the video and criticized the passengers for this reckless act.
“My heart stopped. A little time when their life was saved, ”commented a user. Another user remarked, “Security is blown away, repenting later is pointless.”

It’s more likely between Hebbal and Whitefield in Bangalore. People get off near this junction to avoid being taken to Yeshwantpur (on the Howrah Yeshwantpur Express), which is at the other end of town.

One should not gamble with life, if one survives, he may do urgent work in life or be able to save time and money, otherwise it would be useless, as far as pain is concerned.

Another video showing people’s callous attitude at the crossing went viral in 2018. They were seen intentionally ignoring the guard and crossing the tracks as the train horn sounded.
