In what appears nothing less than a miracle, a Mumbai girl survived a near-death experience after she was run over by a speeding train at a railway station. The girl, now identified as Pratiksha Natekar of Mumbai’s Bhandup, was discharged after getting treatment from the hospital. The video shows that the girl, seemingly unaware of the train coming towards her, was running across the tracks at a railway station in an attempt to climb on the platform at the time of the accident. When she realised the trouble she was in, it was already too late. She turned in an attempt to do a U-turn but it was already too late as the train was already upon her. It hit her with force and threw her to the ground. The video shows that the girl was thrown in the middle of the track by the impact and the train moved over her. However, the girl miraculously received only minor injuries and was taken to Rajawadi Hospital – she fell straight in the middle of the tracks and in line with the rails and sensibly stayed low to survive hr ordeal. She was discharged after treatment.
The girl, while talking to news channel NDTV, appealed to everyone not to plug in earphones while using the railways and use the foot overbridge to cross tracks. Days ago, another miraculous escape was reported when a speeding drunken driver smashed into another car on Long Island in New York, causing the car to split in half, Reuters reported.
