This video is going viral of a young man trying to take a "selfie" next to a passing train. Instead of getting the shot, he got kicked in the head by the conductor. Some are saying the conductor was wrong for doing it, however if you look closer he may have saved the kids life!

First, watch the video.

Now I will freeze the video at the point of impact.

If you notice, some say, the conductor's foot actually softened the blow. Notice the part of the train that is directly behind the conductor's calf. That hard metallic part of the train probably would have killed him! Does that mean the train conductor saved his life?
