A group of very dumb teenagers from Bromsgrove, Worcestershire played an extremely dangerous game of chicken with a high-speed train and it was all caught on camera.
In the pictures you see down below, you can see three teenagers standing in the middle of the tracks as a train heads right towards them. You can also see their friends off to the side, they appear to be encouraging the idiotic behavior.
As the train approaches, the teenagers are seen jumping out of the way just in the nick of time. The British Transport Police are investigating the act of stupidity. It is also believed that the group of teens placed items on the line in front of the train, which could have ended very badly.
A spokesman for the transport police had this to say in a statement,
“BTB is aware of images posted on a social networking site that appear to show a number of youths trespassing on the railway line near Shaw Lane, Stoke Prior. Enquiries are on-going to establish the full details of the incident.”
Geez, what is wrong with kids these days? Did they even think about what might have happened if one of them tripped? That would have been the last game of chicken they ever played.
You know, people want to talk about how kids spend too much time indoors, but maybe that’s a good thing! Look at what happens when they go out in public, they do stupid sh-t like this. We need to start giving kids a test to make sure they are competent enough to venture outside.
