This really should go without saying, but here it goes one more time: it is never a smart idea to take a selfie near a moving train. You can end up being kicked in the face by the conductor, or even worse, almost killed. And the latter is what happened to an Indian man known as Shiva.

Shiva was in Hyderabad recently, the capital of India’s Telangana state, when he decided that he wanted to take a selfie just as a train was zooming past him. You all know where this is headed. According to Mirror Now, Shiva did get a selfie, but unfortunately for him he ended up in the hospital with head injuries because of it. Why’s that? Because he was brutally hit by the train.

Check out the video below to see Shiva make the worst mistake of his life.

And somehow this dude is still alive.

According to NDTV, about 60 percent of the world’s ‘selfie deaths’ between March 2014 and September 2016 took place in India. So hey, India, chill out already.

Check out the news video below to hear more about Shiva and his attempted train selfie.
