WATCH: Two women escape incredible near-miss with train – National

Posted on 24/09/2018 | in 杭州龙凤 | by

A scene reminiscent of the classic 80’s movie  Stand By Me played itself out in real-life in Indiana earlier this month – and it was all caught on camera.

Two women were crossing the 500-foot-long, 80-foot-high rail bridge in Lemon Lake, Indiana when the worst-case scenario unfolded.

An oncoming coal train begins to cross the bridge, and the two women can do nothing but try to outrun it.

“They had walked this path up to the top of the bridge. But there are no walkways up on that bridge because no one is supposed to be walking up there. That’s trespassing. The only things up there are trains and danger,” Eric Powell of Indiana Railroad told WHTR News.

The engineer put on the train’s emergency brakes when he saw the women ahead, but the train could not come to a full stop in time.

As the train bears down on the two women, one of them falls on the tracks and the other goes to her aid in what very likely appears to be their final moments, captured on the train’s security camera.

“This engineer threw the train into emergency braking as quickly as possible. But he had thought he had killed the two people here on this bridge,” said Powell.

But incredibly, the two women had laid down on the tracks as the train passed over top of them.

After the train came to a stop, they crawled out from underneath the train unscathed, and ran.

Powell says the engineer yelled back at the women to see if they were alright.

“One yelled she had stubbed her toe otherwise fine. I’m sure their nerves were as shattered as his were. How they survived that, it’s just nothing short of a miracle.”

Indiana Railroad says the women have been identified and will be prosecuted for criminal trespass.
