A 22-year-old woman in Auburn, Ala. fell asleep on some train tracks and almost met her demise. reports Lynsey Horne was asleep on the tracks when a train came and passed over her exact spot at around 9 a.m. Thursday.

Amazingly, the petite woman was unharmed as the train, which only carried two engines and one car, went over her.

“She was just very fortunate,” Capt. Lorenza Dorsey told “I have never seen anything like it.”

But having a train run over her was the least of her problems. Police charged her with public intoxication and disorderly conduct. Dorsey said she was charged with disorderly conduct because the train was stopped, an ambulance called and a helicopter put on standby.
