Description

WE CAN'T help but chuckle at this poor guy's misfortune. Jared Michael was attempting to take a selfie from a "safe distance" in front of a speeding train, but his attempt derailed rather quickly when the train's conductor stuck his leg out and kicked him in the head. Michael posted footage of the incident on YouTube on Tuesday and has since racked up over a million hits. "I tried to take a selfie while a train passed a "safe" distance behind," he wrote. "I guess I was still too close and got kicked in the head." It appears the incident took place on the Inca Trail; the train looks remarkably similar to Inca Rail, a service that runs from Cusco in south eastern Peru, to the "Lost City of the Incas" at Machu Picchu. A word of warning kids, save yourself from international embarrassment, don't try this at home. And if you'd like a blow-by-blow account of the kick, check out the pics below.
