SEE IT: Elderly man almost gets hit by oncoming train

This is the heart-stopping moment an elderly man narrowly missed being struck by an incoming train by a split second.

The Brazilian man dodged death as he slowly strolled across two railroad tracks in Rio de Janeiro, surveillance camera footage shows.

The train comes barreling toward him as he begins to make his way through the second crossing. It just barely brushes past him as the man safely escapes by less than a second.

He doesn’t look back and appears unfazed that he nearly lost his life, prompting some YouTube users to call the risk-taker their idol.
