Woman falls between carriages of moving train

AUSTRALIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - An Australia woman is lucky to be alive after a close call with a train.

She jumped on to a freight train and then fell between the moving carriages.

Somehow she managed to land between the train tracks and stayed low enough to allow the train to pass over her.

"Underneath I just remember thinking I needed to get closer to the ground and I could just feel the train repeatedly hitting the back of my head," the woman said. "He could see me between the carriages and he told he thought I was dead for sure. Him and the rest of the hospital and rail staff thought I had sustained massive brain injuries and not be able to walk."

The incident actually happened two years ago. Seven News in Australia has been trying to track down the woman ever since.

After she saw the video she decided to speak out to convince others not to try it.
