Pakistani Man Who Got Hit By Train While Shooting TikTok Video Gets Arrested

A youngster, whose age was not shared with the public, was arrested by the police after he got hit by a train while shooting for a TikTok video in Pakistan.

The man was arrested by the police on September 17, 2020, from the Abbottabad City of Pakistan.

Umar Hayat, the man that was arrested, was filming himself near the railway tracks at the Haripur Station in the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

In the video, Hayat posed beside the railway tracks while one of his friends was filming him.

The video showed that he had miscalculated the distance between him and the train itself.

He ended up getting hit by one of its handles on the back of his head.

A video of the incident was uploaded on the TikTok streaming platform, which led the police to arrest him.

The Railway Police Department of Pakistan said that they arrested Hayat under the Section 325 (attempt at suicide) of the Pakistan Penal Code and Section 122A1 of the Railways Act, 1980.

An official case has been registered against him too, said the police.
