Thankfully sounds like he lived, but with injuries obviously.

He's lucky to still have his brains after that one!

Officials say he is out of danger now and gonna recover. He also has been charged with trespassing and ordered to pay 500 rupees. A study was done and from 2014 to 2016 and there were 76 deaths in India involving selfies and trains. This guy was lucky.

Not hard to see why a lot of people die in India on trains, something like 3000 per year:
