Watch: Biker's last-second leap from path of onrushing train

A trail biker had a near-death experience when he was forced to leap out of the path of an oncoming train into a nearby creek.

The footage, filmed near Victoria, Australia, shows the man tugging at his motorbike, which appears to be caught in the train tracks, before he eventually abandons it as the train hurtles towards him at 160 km/h.
