Transit officials are investigating after a person was shown riding on top of a GO Transit train in a video posted to social media over the weekend.
Nitish Bissonauth, a spokesperson for Ontario transit agency Metrolinx, said in a tweet on Monday that safety officers are taking the incident very seriously.
‚ÄúCame across this dangerous, stupid and not to mention illegal stunt. I don‚Äôt know what this person was thinking but nothing can justify this,‚ÄĚ he stated.
The shaky, 10-second video is shot from the perspective of a person on top of a moving GO train. The person‚Äôs face not revealed, though a man‚Äôs feet and legs are shown.
The video was posted Saturday evening on a private instagram account called @6ixbuzztv with the caption ‚ÄúThat Go Train S‚Äď Too Damn Expensive.‚ÄĚ
Bissonauth said transit officials are still investigating, but have an idea of where it was shot.
The agency is strongly discouraging anyone from attempting such a stunt.
‚ÄúNo idea how this ended but he certainly chose to risk his life for some kind of thrill,‚ÄĚ Anne Marie Aikins, a spokesperson for Metrolinx.
