The incident was filmed at the Asangaon railway station in Ramayan Nagar in the town of Ulhasnagar located in the western Indian state of Maharashtra, and shared on Twitter by netizen ‘Aroosa Ahmed’ where it has been widely circulated.
According to reports, the unnamed man squeezed himself in a gap between the platform and the tracks as an express train with24 coaches passed through the station at high speed.
However, it is unclear whether he did it intentionally as a daredevil stunt or somehow by accident.
In the video footage, the train is seen speeding past the station to suddenly reveal a man in a blue top crouched beneath the platform, right next to the track where the train had just passed.
Scores of people, apparently aware of the stunt, approach the edge of the platform to check if the man is unharmed.

When he gingerly gets to his feet and begins to walk across the tracks to the other side, the crowd is heard murmuring excitedly.
The railway authority has warned members of the public not to take part in dangerous stunts as it is not always possible to survive the daredevil attempts.
It is currently unclear whether the local authorities are investigating the man in the video.
