A most dangerous game. It's called the train game. In Colombia, teen-agers wait on the tracks until they see the train headed their way. Then, just moments before they are hit, they lie between the rails, letting the train pass over them.
So far, there have been no reported deaths. But there have been injuries, like this young man who lost two of his fingers on the tracks.
Local authorities said they plan to start a public health campaign to convince the daredevils that this is a dangerous sport.
