Foolish prankster risks his life by 'flipping in front of train'

The daredevil filmed the stunt at Polezhaevskaya station on Moscow Metro.

The identity of the daredevil stuntman is not known as he covered his face with a scarf throughout the entire video.

The trickster is seen at the beginning of the clip casually tying up his Adidas trainers.

He then walks behind a pillar, remaining out of sight until the train approaches.

Suddenly, the man reappears and hurls himself across the tracks – just inches away from the startled train driver.
