Daredevil 'Death Wish' Subway Riding in NYC, Russia: VIDEOS


I guess subway surfing is a new YouTube video meme. Two clips featuring daredeveil subway riders are getting some attention today.

In one, a NYC man "with a death wish" rides the J Train while clinging to the outside, before dropping and disappearing "like a subway rat" into a hole near the track when authorities approach.

In the second, a man on a Russian metro train clings to the very front of the train on a wild ride through the underground tunnels before hoofing it out of a station.

Watch both videos, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. No one seems too concerned for the safety/life of #1. Please tell me I'm missing something here.

  7. 2 people have already died in stunts like this over the last couple years. The last one was pubished a lot in the area and seems to have reduced it somewhat.

    My fear is that new kids will see this and try it..with disastrous results.
