Woman survives being run over by a train

Shocking CCTV images stunned Israel earlier this year, when a 56-year old woman ended up in hospital after attempting to commit suicide by throwing herself in front of a high-speed passenger train, and miraculously survived.

Security camera’s caught the whole incident. You can see on the video that the woman walks onto the train tracks in the Israeli city of Beit Yehoshua as a bystander and possibly a railroad worker watch her lie down. Seconds later, a train passes by and presumably running her over. Howver, after the train passed, the woman got up, brushed herself off, walked back to her car and drove away.

The woman was tracked down by local authorities and brought to a local hospital for treatment. As a miracle, she only suffered minor injuries to her head. She later said to local media she wanted to end her life after losing her job as a travel agent. Watch the video here yourself:
