WATCH: Man clings to windshield wiper on train

- An Australia woman captured the moment a man decided to forego paying his train fare, opting instead to cling to the back of the train for a ride.

A motorist riding in a car alongside the train spotted the man hanging onto the windshield wiper outside the back window of the train.

His body was pressed against the glass as he held onto the train over the weekend.

"The train had been stopped at a station when we first saw the guy riding on the back," said Chantelle Stone. "We slowed down a bit so the train could get ahead of us again so I could capture the footage," she said.

Stone said the train was traveling around 70 miles per hour, which is around the speed limit of the Mitchell Freeway, which Stone was traveling on.

Stone posted the video on Facebook with the caption," When u don't wanna ride with the filth on the train but u got places to be..."

Local reports say police arrested the 23-year-old man when the train got to the next station.
