WATCH: Women survive encounter with train on rail bridge
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two Indiana women are lucky to be alive after a freight train ran right over top of them.
The engineer of the 100-car coal train activated its emergency brakes when he saw the women walking on the 80-foot-high railroad bridge near Bloomington.
Video shows the women running from the train, but they tripped and fell before making it across the bridge.
Amazingly, they survived - fitting between the train and the tracks.
The women will face charges for criminal trespassing.
