A Man Runs Across Train Tracks, and Comes Within Inches of Getting Hit

Transit officials in Australia released video of a guy who almost got himself killed trying to sneak across train tracks.  He's on the platform waiting for one train to pass, and after it does, he takes off for the other side, even though another train is coming.

The video shows two different angles.  In the first you see him waiting and then running . . . and in the second he's crawling onto the platform as the train comes within inches of hitting him.
