Window Seat 05 Oct 17

A 59-year-old tourist from Romania has escaped unscathed after clinging to the outside of a high-speed train for about 20km because he had disembarked without taking his luggage.

The hapless traveller realised he had left his bag on board in Bielefeld, northern Germany, and leapt onto a ledge on the side of the train as it slid out of the station and accelerated to about 160km/h.

Luckily the driver was alerted to his presence and managed to stop the train at the next station.

The man collected his bag and continued his journey “after thanking the rail personnel for the fact he is still alive”.
