Onlookers use stones to stop train which starts rolling on its own

A lone man took the initiative and tried to place stones as makeshift wheel stoppers when a train started rolling by itself in Ankleshwar, India. He was soon joined by a few others, who also found stones of the right size, to bring the train to a halt. Two Coaches of Ankleshwar-Rajpipla passenger train reportedly took off on their own due to a human error in ‘loose shunting’ – a technique used by rail companies to move coaches to workshops. The filmer can be heard in the footage joking that India was trying to run a bullet train despite a poor safety record. Ankleshwar is in Gujarat, the home state of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has made it a priority to give the country its first bullet train with a soft loan from Japan.
