A lone traveler in a peculiarly small motorized carriage trudged across a railway crossing, his leashed canine companion loyally following behind. With millennia of his ancestors whispering in his brain to turn back, he remained unfazed by the screeching monstrosity bearing down on him. Watch the video.
He and the stalwart hound narrowly escaped a gruesome fate as the dread locomotive lumbered by them barely a second after they made it to the other side.
Although to most onlookers, the man's actions would appear reckless, there is a possibility that the gentle-sir had some urgent destination that required him to cross immediately, so it is inadvisable to form a premature opinion.
