In South Africa, two thieves reportedly stole an empty commuter train from a depot and drove it for 12km (7.5 miles) along the coast of KwaZulu-Natal province, reports IOL News.
The article goes on to say that the weekend joyride only stopped when the train lost momentum going up hill. The two men then jumped out and fled into a nearby forest chased by security guards.
The rest of the details are patchy because the investigation is too sensitive to allow for further details to be released, Zama Nomnganga, spokesman for the rail agency, is quoted by IOL as saying.
But he is quoted as saying that the incident was extremely dangerous.
“That was a high-risk activity, as anything could have happened to them. This is not Playstation.”
