This link is from a TV broadcast and includes security footge supplied to all media by the Railroad. The event occured late at night at a Sydney suburban station in the far western suburbs.
 
An over riding question is what was a 13 year old doing out at that hour? Why were his family and parents allowing it?
 
As an aside; this is a station I often visit to photograph special workings. I expect that there will be increased security patrols in the area.

Umm, well, might call him a Darwin wannabe, but I am not sure running out in front of a train is adequately unusual to qualify.  Very stupid thing to do.
