A Guy Doesn't Look Both Ways at a Railway Crossing and Is Almost Killed

Here's another frightening train video that could've ended badly.  A security cam from the Netherlands shows a cyclist waiting as a train goes by, and then he starts crossing but doesn't see a different train coming from the other way.
