Dramatic Video Shows Women’s Terrifying Close Call with a Train
There's a crazy video captured on a camera mounted on a train of two women in Indiana narrowly escaping death when the speeding train rolled up on them. At first, the women try to outrun the train but quickly realize that's not going to happen. So one of them lies down in the middle of the tracks and flattens herself. The other appears to contemplate jumping off the 80-foot-tall bridge before thinking better of it and dropping down into the middle of the tracks like the first woman did. Seconds later, the train passes over them.
Their terrifying train escape was nothing short of a miracle. According to news reports, there was only 11 inches of room from ground to train. Authorities say they will likely face trespassing charges.
It reminded me of the movie "Stand By Me" where the boys are walking on a similar looking bridge and almost get killed by a train. Remember this scene?
