CBS News published this harrowing video this morning showing a man who nearly got killed after darting out in front of a express train last month.

The video captured the February incident at the Redwood City Caltrain Station during the morning commute. Needless to say, this 1:30 video is a good life-lesson for daring pedestrians who think they're skilled at cheating death.

Fortunately, this guy didn't get killed, but it was a damn close call.
