The boy is seen holding onto the sides of the door as two young men inside the tram film him on their phones and laugh.
‘What if he falls off, c***?,’ the person who published the TikTok clip is heard saying.
After about 10 seconds, the teen then appears to let go of the tram door and falls onto the tracks.
‘Oh my God! Oh my God!’ the commuter says as he moves closer to the door to capture the fall.
The TikTok user claimed in the comments section of the video that the boy was okay afterwards.
‘Got up and walked it off like a champ,’ he posted.
He claimed the teenager was an ‘eshay’ who ‘tried to fight’ him and his friend beforehand.

The spokesperson said interfering with public transport infrastructure can result in fines of up to $550.
‘There are more than 300 CCTV cameras across the network, which are monitored 24/7, and this behaviour will be immediately reported to the Queensland Police Service.’
