Jared Michael posted the short video on YouTube with the message: "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."
In the video, the train's conductor can be heard shouting something inaudible before sticking his foot out and kicking Michael directly in the face and head.
