Woman Almost Killed By Train; Ducks Under Crossing Arm At Last Second (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

A woman in the Netherlands was a split second away from an almost-certain death when she ducked under the crossing arm at a railroad station after it had come down to signal that a train was approaching.

She quickly got back on the safe side -- but there wasn't a moment to spare as the train came roaring past.

The footage from Oisterwijk station is a few years old, but Dutch railway company ProRail released it this week as a public service message to warn people against crossing under the arm and to show why it plans to build a tunnel at the station, according to a Google translation of an article on the website of NOS, a Dutch public broadcaster.
