A 2-year-7-month-old girl miraculously lived after she crawled on to the tracks and a train passed over her, just missing her, Sunday on the Yashiro Line in Suzaka City, Nagano Prefecture. According to police, when the girl saw the train drawing near her, she lay down in the space between the rails. The conductor saw the girl and attempted to stop the train, but couldn't do so before the train passed over her body.
The girl received only scratches to her forehead, and climbed out from beneath the train by herself after it stopped. The girl had come to the area to visit her grandfather, who lives nearby, and wandered off when her mother wasn't looking.
The incident occurred near a crossing gate about 200 meters before Suzaka station. The train had been traveling at about 40km/h.© News reports
