In order to attract attention on social media , sometimes people go further than usual and take unnecessary risks. While a similar incident took place in Pakistan, a young man who was hit by a train lost his life.
In the incident that happened Friday in the Sheikh Khalid neighborhood of Rawalpindi near Islamabad , 18-year-old Hamza Naveed was walking by the train tracks while a friend was filming his video.

Rescue team spokesman Raja Rafakat Zaman also shared details on the issue. Saying that they received information about the incident from his friends, Zaman expressed that the young person wanted to shoot the video to share it on TikTok and other social media channels.
Social media usage in Pakistan has reached very high rates. Especially applications such as TikTok attract great attention. Facebook and Twitter are also popular platforms among the locals.
Previously, there were young people who died in Pakistan due to TikTok . In an incident in the city of Karachi, a 17-year-old youth shot himself while shooting a video and died. In 2019, a 17-year-old teenager died in a similar incident.
