22-year-old Lukas Knopf filmed himself cycling on a narrow ridge above the Enge train station in Zurich. If he had fallen, he would have ended up on the tracks after passing through the high voltage power lines.

A railways spokesman says it’s a life-threatening stunt – and is concerned that others may try to imitate it.

Knopf has commented on his YouTube page that maybe he shouldn’t have posted that particular scene. But he hasn’t deleted it.

He has 165,000 followers on You Tube and 117,000 on Instagram.
