In Uttar Pradesh's Barabanki, a tragic incident unfolded as a 16-year-old boy named Farhan lost his life while attempting to film an Instagram reel. His friend recorded the accident on a mobile phone, and the video circulated on social media.
The teenager's reel was centered around capturing a speeding train in the background. Unfortunately, the stunt took a tragic turn, resulting in him being struck by the fast-moving train.
The disturbing video shared on social media depicts the train colliding with the boy, propelling him into the air before he crashes to the side.
This unfortunate incident occurred on the railway track within the jurisdiction of the Jahangirabad police station. Authorities have initiated an investigation and sent the body for post-mortem examination.
Earlier this year, another tragic accident occurred when a 20-year-old man fell to his death while creating an Instagram reel with his friends at a college in Chhattisgarh's Bilaspur district. The incident, which unfolded at Government Science College in Bilaspur town, was recorded by the victim's friends on their mobile phones. In the video, the victim, Sao, can be seen jumping onto a window slab while saying, "If I jump from here to there (other window shed) I will not be able return." To this, his friend is heard saying, "You will (come back). I am making a video." (As reported by NDTV)
