HOUSTON — Houston Metro officials are hoping that newly-released video of a boy’s close encounter with an approaching train will motivate people to get real about rail safety, ABC News reports.

The video shows one kid crossing the tracks at a quick pace as a train approaches the station. Seconds later, another boy can be seen trying to get across. The boy quickly retreats when he realizes the train is headed toward him.


Metro posted the video of the October 2016 incident on YouTube along with a message urging parents to “talk to your kids about rail safety.” For the full story, click here.
