Man kicked in the face by a train conductor while taking a selfie

A young man has learned the hard way why it is a bad idea to take a selfie right next to a speeding train.

Jared Michael said he "tried to take a selfie while a train passed a 'safe' distance behind" when the train's engineer kicked him in the head and yelled at him as he motored by.

"I guess I was still too close and got kicked in the head. I messed up," said Michael.

Straight after the contact, a seemingly surprised Michael exclaims, 'Wow! I got kicked in the head! I think I got that on film!'"

The video has been viewed on YouTube nearly two million times and has drawn a wide array of comments.

"You got kicked in the head because you're a f***ing idiot! You are a DEFINITE nominee for the Darwin Award!" said one user.

"If that's not a face ignorant of incoming danger, I don't know what is," said another.

"That is NOT funny! That is SAD all you dumb, cruel jerks!" said a sympathetic user.
