Video: Heart-Stopping Moment Girl Almost Loses Her Head From Oncoming Train

A shocking video has emerged of a young girl narrowly avoiding decapitation by a train.

The footage, which was posted on YouTube, shows the unnamed female sticking her head out of a train window at the encouragement of her friends.

The smiling girl - who appears to be American - is then just inches from tragedy as a train hurtles past her in the opposite direction.

She then pulls her head back in and collapses in both giggles and shock on the floor, saying. 'Oh my God, oh my God', as her pals ask her if she is OK.

One can be heard to exclaim 'holy sh*t!' as they realise the horror of what nearly happened.

Comments on the video range from calling her stupid, to branding the pair of them Dumb and Dumber.
