Woman survives being run over by three trains

Woman Gets Run Over By 3 Trains, Survives

22-year-old Mary Downey, pictured in the New York Post, drunkenly stumbled to the subway around 6am Sunday morning...and then drunkenly stumbled onto the tracks...just as a train was pulling in.

But with some surprisingly quick thinking, she reportedly squished herself between the rails just enough so that the train barreled right over her.

Then she stayed there, helpless, as two more trains passed over her. No one realized she was down there until the conductor of the third train noticed her waving. He immediately slammed on the brakes ... but not before rolling over her.

Talk about being trained in survival.

Downey suffered a broken shoulder - but not because of the near brush with death. She apparently broke it when she fell onto the platform.

She was released from the hospital after only a few hours and taken home...in a cab.

Don't worry who'll pay for her injuries.......she'll be suing because the subway should never have placed those tracks there..........

Too bad she survived. Someone this idiotic should be the Darwin Award recipient and should be sterilized to prevent her from passing on her idiotic-inbred genes.

If women between the ages of 15 and 30 stopped drinking, the percentage of rapes in this country would drop to almost nothing. just sayin...

chrissy... you could very well be correct, but the name-calling? Inappropriate, particularly in a venue where people are simply expressing opinions.

Why in the world was she out by herself drunk at 6am?. So very dangerous! The very least she needed a friend with her. So glad she ended up OK and now she needs to take a step back and get her life together.

Drunk at 6am on a Sunday morning. Her life is already a train wreck.

This is clearly a case of war on women by trains.
