Three coaches of a train passed over a woman’s body when she suddenly jumped in front of it at Andheri station Mumbai but she is still alive. The 22-year-old woman had a miraculous escape after she jumped in front of an approaching train, a senior GRP official said today. The video of the woman falling in front of the train was captured by a CCTV camera installed at the station. The video has gone viral on social media. “The footage shows a woman identified as Kshitija Suryavanshi, talking to someone over mobile. She looks stressed after the conversation, said the official.

“After hanging up the call, the woman waits for a few seconds and then leaps in front of an approaching train,” he said. He added that by the time the train halted three coaches had already passed over Suryavanshi. The GRP and railway officials rushed to rescue her and pulled her out of tracks immediately, he told PTI. According to the GRP official Suryavanshi had fallen in the gap between the track, which was about three feet, and hence escaped from getting crushed. The incident took place on Saturday.
