This dude let a train run over his GoPro on purpose

First there were automobiles, and now there are trains.

We’ve already gotten a unique perspective from one mode of transportation, and now we’ve seen another.

One GoPro owner decided back in 2012 that it was a good idea to place his camera in the middle of train tracks to see what it looked like underneath the train. Granted, that sort of thing needs to be set up well in advance of an oncoming train for safety reasons, so you can get stuck with a whole lot of nothing before the train rolls in.

But once it does, it’s like getting hit with a gust of wind before being completely engulfed in rushing sounds and flashing lights.

All we’re missing at this point is a GoPro from a plane to match the movie title.
