Train Surfing Schoolboy Caught On CCTV Seconds Before His Death

This was the last moment Russian schoolboy Maxim Ryzhov was seen alive, when a CCTV camera spotted him scrambling on top of a Russian underground train. Minutes later he was hit on the head as the train pulled out of the station and into the tunnel further down the track. He suffered massive head injuries and was knocked off the roof, landing on the connection between the two carriages where his body lay until it was discovered almost an hour later. Pals said it was not the first time that the 14-year-old had tried the stunt, and he had been encouraged to do it again because of the attention he got when he videoed the previous attempts and shared them with friends. Shortly before he died a passenger spotted him clambering onto the roof at the "Shipilovskaya" underground station in the capital Moscow, and tried to raise the alarm, but was unable to do so before the train had pulled out of the station. As it entered the tunnel further down the track the boy received the injuries that killed him instantly. Although underground officials knew that he had climbed on board it took almost an hour for them to work out which train he had been on and discover the body. Medics were on hand but could only confirm that the boy was dead from massive head injuries. Friends of Maxim have posted various pictures of him, saying how much they all miss him, and that he will always be part of them. One, Alexandra Romanova, summed up the feelings of most when she posted the now infamous video of Maxim performing the same "trick" some time ago, with the simple comment that seemed to sum up what they were all feeling: "Because of this?!".
