The youngsters stood on the tracks for as long as they dared as the train headed towards them near the suburban train station in Köniz.

The driver slammed on the emergency brake – the two pranksters raced off before the train came to a halt.

Police say the move was dangerous and illegal and the two youths could be fined CHF 10,000 each.
