A 17-year-old boy surnamed Liang almost died when he tried to use a kung fu
movement to stop a running train in Laibin Railway Station in South China's
Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on Tuesday, Nanguo Jinbao reported.
Liang was pushed to safety by a railway policeman just as he was about to be
knocked down. Liang jumped down to the tracks and wanted to use
Xianglongshibazhang, a famous kung fu posturing described in many swordsman
fictions, to stop the running train.
He was taken into custody for breaking railway rules and said he wanted to
test whether or not he could use kung fu to stop the train. Liang is a great fan
of swordsman fiction and has also learnt martial arts.
