Train did not wake up drunk Russian

A Russian man who fell asleep on rail tracks did not wake up when a 40-carriage cargo train passed over him, which saved his life, Interfax reported Monday.

The man, 23, had drunk too much and fallen asleep between railway tracks near the village of Dmitrievka in Russia’s Far Eastern region of Amur.

The train driver saw a man lying on the rails and used the emergency brake, but the train still went over the man’s body. Luckily it managed to pass over without even as much as scratching the man, the local law enforcement agency told Interfax.
