CCTV footage has captured the moment a man in Czech Republic was hit by a speeding train - but walked away with only minor injuries.

The 77-year-old pensioner was filmed walking through a level crossing in the Rajec-Jastrabi village, then waiting for a few moments before deciding to cross the tracks.

Seconds later he was hit by the train and fell the ground, sending his shoe flying off.

Police said the man suffered minor injuries and will face a fine of 2500 Czech Crowns (£75) over the incident.
