These passengers make a perilous commute every day - leaping onto a ferry. The boat pulls up to the side of a canal to take locals around the city in Bangkok, Thailand. The form of transport is cheap at just 10 baht a ride sometimes covering several miles.

But it also carries plently of risks. To board the boat, passengers have to crowd rouand and step from the dock across a gap and then duck below the boat's awning.

Footage from the Pratunam Pier shows how women carrying shoppig bags or men with briefcases leap onto the vessel - sometimes while it's still moving. ''We have to hurry up because the boat stops then moves away quickly,'' said one passenger.

''When it's busy there are many people all trying to jump on at the same time.'' Although canal ferrys are popular, there are regular accidents from people tripping when they get on and off the boat.

In December last year, brave onlookers had to jump into the water and haul a woman to safety after she fell while stepping off a boat - only avoidng being crushed because locals pushed the boat back.
