Two teens have been caught on film performing a dangerous stunt on the back of a speeding train in New Zealand.

The boys, who were hanging off the train carriage, were recorded and the footage was then posted on Instagram. It was later circulated on the Internet.

According to NZ media, police and rail authorities have condemned their behaviour.

Police shift commander John Spence said: “Falling off a train travelling at 90kmh would have led to serious if not fatal injuries.”

The pair apparently abandoned their joy ride before the train reached the next station.

The Metro trains as seen in the video can reach speeds of 110km/h.
