    A man has been arrested in China after jumping in front of a subway train with a camera because he though it would be 'exciting'.


    The 28-year-old said he filmed himself as he jumped onto the tracks in front of a train on the Shanghai subway, as he wanted to put the footage on the internet.


    Mr Tang was the only person on the platform when he filmed the train approaching and then jumped down onto the tracks, lying down between them as the train came to a halt over him.


    Security camera footage showed the entire incident - and Tang climbing back onto the platform as an anxious train conductor came out to see what happened. Tang told the driver he had accidentally fallen onto the tracks.


    The video footage clearly showed Tang willingly jumping down onto the tracks, so it wasn't long before investigators caught up with him.


    Tang admitted to police officers that he did the stunt for fame - thinking that it would make him popular on the internet.
