A schoolboy thought to be 17 years old died while playing on top of a train in South Africa.

The train left Philippi in Cape Town at about 7am, it passed under a bridge and it is thought that he didn't see the electric train wires in the dim morning light and was shocked to death.

He was wearing a school uniform.

Witnesses said the he had been dancing and running on top of the train for a while before he was caught out.

Commuter Siloyise Masizana (25) said: "We heard him dancing while his friends cheered him on.



"Then there was a sudden loud bang and the train came to a stop."

Another witness, Xolani Joja said: "I was told that it wasn't the first time he had gone staff riding.

"He did it all the time on his way to school. It's so sad that he died this way."

The boy's body could be seen lying on top of the train where it fell.

Cops were called to the scene.

Passengers on the train had to wait for another train to get to their destinations.
