Talk about Ironic – a German man who was mooning railway staff in a departing train got his pants caught in a carriage door and ended up being dragged half naked along the platform, out of the station and then onto the tracks.
The 22 year old, a journalism student, had shoved his backside against the window of a low slung double-decker train when staff forced him off in Lauenbrueck for traveling without a ticket.
“It’s a miracle he wasn’t badly hurt,” the spokesman said on Monday. “This sort of thing can end up killing you.”
Instead, dangling by his trousers, the man got pulled along for about 200 meters, all the while managing to keep his legs away from the wheels of the train.
The ordeal ended when a passenger pulled the emergency brake. Rescues services were called in, causing rail services between Bremen and Hamburg to be suspended for over an hour, delaying 23 trains.
The man faces charges of dangerous interference in rail transport, insulting train staff and he could face a sizable compensation claim for the delays that he caused.
It looks like Karma gave him a swift kick in the seat of his pants …er almost bare behind.
