Incredible survival: Indian woman and child dragged under train that doesn't stop
CCTV captured the moment a woman and child were dragged under a train in India, that didn't stop even once the alarm was raised.
Miraculously, the pair survived with only minor injuries after their ordeal on Thursday 2 September.
At around 4.38pm local time, when the Lokmanya Tilak Express from Jamalpur station headed to Bhagalpur, a woman got down from the train carrying her small child.
It is common in India for people to board and alight moving trains, which sometimes do not even fully stop in stations.
The woman lost her balance and slid between the train and the platform. Fortunately neither she nor the child went under the wheels of the train.
Although railway police and staff saw the situation, they did not stop the train.
The passenger was 35-year-old Paro Devi, resident in Hawachandra Tola Suryagarha.
