NEW footage has been released showing the terrifying moment a boy ran in front of a speeding train at Mawson Lakes.
The footage, released by the Transport Department , was taken from inside the driver's cabin of the train which narrowly missed the youth as he sprinted across tracks at the Mawson Lakes interchange on April 11 this year.
The youth emerged from behind a stationary train into the path of a Gawler-bound express train travelling at 90km/h.
He was clipped by the train, narrowly avoiding serious injury. Services were stopped for two hours while the incident was investigated.
The footage was released as part of National Rail Safety week and includes a voiceover by a train driver describing the trauma of people running in front of trains
