TikTok nearly took another life as a young boy in India was lucky enough to escape from being crushed under a moving train.
The boy was recording a Tik Tok video while jumping off a moving train but lost his balance. He luckily survived the fall from the train and moved away from the tracks.
After the incident, Indian Railways took to Twitter to issue an advisory against boarding and deboarding a moving train. It read that the boy was lucky enough to survive the fall this time but may not be lucky for a second time around.
The tweet asked people to avoid such stunts and also stop others from making such videos. They asserted that life is invaluable and should not be endangered for a stunt or a video.
TikTok is a video-sharing social networking application that is used to create short lip-sync, comedy, and talent videos.
This is not the first time that youngsters have risked their lives to make TikTok videos to get high views and likes.
Earlier in January, a teenage boy had lost his life after a revolver accidentally went off while he was shooting a TikTok video in India’s Uttar Pradesh village.
TikTok has over 500 million active users worldwide. The app had already crossed 1 billion downloads last year.
