Two young schoolgirls have risked their lives hanging off the back of a moving train in a dangerous TikTok video. They uploaded footage of themselves standing outside a train speeding towards Belair Station, in south Adelaide, in their school uniforms.
The Henley High School students seemed unconcerned by the dangerous act and clung on to the train for 20 minutes. The video showed one schoolgirl record herself cocking her hand and making finger gun motions towards the camera.

One of the girls also left a comment on the TikTok and revealed they held on for 20 minutes before the driver noticed and kicked them off the train.
The Department of Education said Henley High School was aware of the video and working with the schoolgirls’ parents. The high school is using the incident as a learning opportunity for online safety.
