A German man mooning at railway staff in a departing train got his trousers caught in a carriage door and ended up being dragged half naked along the platform, out of the station and onto the tracks.

The 22-year-old journalism student shoved his backside against the window of a low-slung double-decker train when staff forced him off in Lauenbrueck for traveling without a ticket, a spokesman for police in the northern city of Bremen said.

It's a miracle he wasn't badly hurt, the spokesman said on Monday. "This sort of thing can end up killing you."

Instead, dangling by his trousers, the man got pulled along for about 200 meters, all the while managing to keep his legs away from the wheels of the train.

The ordeal ended when a passenger pulled the emergency brake . Rescues services were called in, causing rail services between Bremen and Hamburg to be suspended for over an hour.

The man who was unharmed except for cuts and bruises faces charges of dangerous interference in public transport, "insulting" the train staff, and may face a compensation claim for the delays he caused.

He was full of remorse when I talked to him, the spokesman said. He also advised others not to try the same thing.

Slàinte,

OUCH!

Too bad public trains don't run through Murphy anymore, or I'd be able to visualize this a lot better. Still though, yeah he learned his lesson, in a way he never wants to experience again. laugh.gif

I wonder if it might have been a wooden platform, splinters and the like!
