Teen trying to take selfie in front of train gets kicked by conductor

Teen was a 'safe' distance from train

DETROIT – It seems people are finding more and more places to take selfies. This particular teen decided to take a selfie in front of a train. He learned a lesson.

During the selfie attempt, while the teen has his serious face ready to go for the selfie, the train's conductor lets out a yell and then sticks out his leg, kicking the guy square in the head.

The teen in the video, Jared Michael, posted the 10-second video on YouTube, explaining, "I tried to take a selfie while a train passed a ‘safe' distance behind. I guess I was still too close and got kicked in the head. I messed up."
