Dramatic footage released by Irish Rail shows commuters risking their lives by walking across train tracks


Dramatic footage from Irish Rail shows commuters risking their lives crossing train tracks as trains drive closely by.

The video shows a number of near misses as people hop across rail lines to reach the other platform.

Irish Rail have condemned these actions and has called on the public to stay clear of train tracks or "it could be a shortcut to death'.

Barry Kenny, Irish Rail communications manager, told the Irish Mirror: "Railway lines are dangerous places and are for trains and trains alone.

A woman climbs down on to the tracks as a train comes in
 

"If someone slips and falls on the tracks while attempting to cross like this a train would find it extremely difficult to slow down.

"A train can't avoid you, it can only stay on the tracks."

Kenny added: "We don't want to see someone killed."

One section of the video shows a group of five people walking behind a train to reach another platform in while another shows a woman jumping down on to the tracks seconds before a train pulls up.
