He covers ears and eyes with his hands and crosses the tracks a few seconds before the train. He crosses a street, nearly crashing into a car. He looks around (but not behind): 'Look out! We're coming to a bend!' He turns, notices that the driver is gone, and nearly falls of the motorbike. The servant and the kidnapped girl in the hut.
