Video shows man catching ride on top of train

Commuter videotaped holding onto top of train

LONG ISLAND - A man who caught a ride on top of a New York train has also caught the eye of police.

The reckless commuter was caught on video Sunday morning on top of a Long Island Rail Road train in Queens.

Boruch Nemtzov, 28, was waiting at the station when he spotted the man on the train's roof, according to the Daily News.

He videotaped the man, who was on his stomach holding onto the top of the train as it sped by the station.

"What was he doing up there? Maybe he was trying to beat a $20 fare," Nemtzov told the paper.

The train was bound for Babylon, which is about a 45-minute ride.

Nemtzov called police, but it is unclear if the man was arrested.
