I was busy involved in shooting approaching 12951 Mumbai Rajdhani Express when I saw a man all of a sudden crossing railway track, he saw the superfast train entering Dadar a a great speed, still he climbs the fence, stands so close (barely 3-4feet from the train) and even shows the hand to the engine driver to stop the train. The man would have been sucked by the Three phase locomotive (GZB WAP-5# 30035) or generator car if the alert motorman wouldnt have applied brakes and slowed down the train. The man would have been in trouble if the train would have done speeds of 95-100kph.
There was no hurry to climb the fence and take such a risk, since a emu had departed from the platform just 1min back and the next emu was expected in 5mins.
