By: WJAC Web Staff

PERU -- Apparently taking "selfies" is a thing to do.

Jared Michaels posted a video of himself Tuesday with the description "I tried to take a selfie while a train passed a safe distance behind. I guess I was still too close and got kicked in the head. I messed up."

Luckily, Michaels did not get hurt.

The video has over 11 million views on YouTube.

Many are saying Michaels is lucky to be alive.
