Russian boy is hit by a tram while running across the tracks

This is the shocking moment a 13-year-old boy is hit by a tram after he ran in front of it and amazingly survived. The startling scene was recorded by a security camera on the vehicle at the Carnival shopping centre in the city of Yekaterinburg in central Russia’s Sverdlovsk Oblast region.

 

 

 

 

In the video, the tram can be seen making its way down the track next to a busy road as a young boy, reportedly 13 years old, begins jogging towards it. The youngster who can be seen on the right hand side of the video seems distracted by a tram travelling in the other direction.

As he jogs closer to the tracks he fails to spot the tram coming towards him and the camera shakes as the teenager is hit. The tram crashes into the youngster who disappears beneath it before the female tram driver Olga Zaystseva, 54, can bring the vehicle to a halt.
