A Czech pensioner has cheated death after being clipped by a train as he tried to nip through a closed rail crossing.
Meanwhile his shoe is flung high into the air, coming to rest some yards away from him.
After waiting for the train to pass, he scrambles back up and begins to hunt for his shoe.
According to the video's uploader, police spokeswoman Iva Blanenská Šebková said: "The man was very lucky, he suffered a leg injury, but there is no danger to life."
Disturbingly, the occupants of a car within shot simply drive through the barriers without stopping to enquire after the old chap.
