A couple of days ago, this video went viral showing a kid taking a selfie on front of a moving train. He never really got that selfie though, because as the train passed the kid, the train's conductor stuck his foot out and kicked the kid in the head. Was it funny? Sure. Was it mean? Nope. It appears the conductor wasn't being mean at all...he was actually saving the kid's life!

Here's the original video


Now, check out the still shot below. Look behind the train conductor's foot. There's a piece of metal aimed straight at the kid's head! If that metal would have hit the kid, he certainly would have died. The conductor stuck his foot out to block the metal from hitting the kid. He figured better to kick the guy in the head than have his head sliced open...and he figured exactly right.
