Tired of hitchhiking, two Ohio men hopped a moving train, but more than 50 miles later, the train hadn’t slowed down enough for them to hop off so they called 911.

Police made the rail operator stop the train and the free riders were eventually caught and arrested for trespassing. The police captain seemed kind of impressed, noting that it’s very unusual to be nimble enough to call 911 while hanging off the side of a train.
