A video showing a man risking his life and jumping in front of a train has appeared online.

In the footage a young Russian man is seen jumping from one platform to another as a train comes towards him.

The man protects his identity in the video by covering his face. Transport chiefs and police have now warned others not to take such risks.

Reports claim the video was filmed by a friend of the stunt man, who tried to convince him not to perform the stunt beforehand.

However, some believe the video is fake, according to The Mirror, as those on the platform and the train driver don't seem to acknowledge the incident.
