This train commuter was recently filmed atop a Metrorail train as it approached an unnamed local station, but not before it went through a dangerously low tunnel where the commuter performed a particularly dangerous stunt.

Overcrowded trains have been a major talking point in Cape Town lately, with videos surfacing of densely-packed carriages and passengers taking to sitting above them during transit. A man was tragically electrocuted last week by overhead powerlines near Khayelitsha station, as he had no option but to sit above a carriage due to it being over capacity.
