A schoolboy leaps on to the roof of a moving bus as he is filmed by friends for a video they posted on YouTube.
The teenager is filmed waiting for the single-decker as it enters an underpass into a bus station. As the bus slows down he leaps 10ft on to the roof before lying down.
He is then seen inching his way to the back of the bus before jumping 15ft from its roof to the road and running away. The 16-second clip called Bus Jump has already attracted more than 3,000 hits on You Tube.
Debbie Riley, a mother of two who lives near the bus station in Maidstone, Kent, said: “This is so dangerous. That boy could have been killed. It is deeply irresponsible of these kids to encourage their school friends to do things like this.”
Chief Inspector David Pascoe, of Kent Police, said: “These are idiotic and irresponsible stunts and we would strongly advise against it, not only for the safety of the person carrying out the action, but also members of the public. Had any of these jumps been miscalculated they could have ended in tragedy.”
