This is the moment a young woman waiting for a train stumbles forward and falls headfirst under a moving train after feeling faint.
The footage, which Newsflash obtained from the Ministry of Transport of Argentina, shows the woman, dressed in white, apparently feeling unwell and stumbling on the platform.
As she does so she staggers forwards and falls headfirst between two of the moving train’s carriages as onlookers clasp their hands to their heads and look away in shock.
The footage then cuts and shows members of staff and commuters helping the young woman back onto the platform, alive and conscious.
The young woman, who has been named only as 24-year-old Candela, reportedly survived with a fractured skull after the incident, which took place in the city of Gonzalez Catan, which is located in the La Matanza Partido, in Buenos Aires Province, in eastern Argentina, on Tuesday, 29th March, at 2:34pm.
It was not revealed why the images were only made public now.
Candela, who is said to be the mother of a two-year-old girl, was reportedly taken to the Alberto Balestrini hospital and she has since been discharged after a few days of treatment.
The young woman told local media that she had been about to board the train to go and eat with some friends when the incident happened. She said: “I don’t remember anything about the accident. I only remember when I was lying on the floor, with people around me, and then when I was admitted to hospital.”
She added: “I had a rib fracture that pierced my liver and I was quite bad, it took me a few days and it was the most dangerous thing I have faced. I also suffered a contusion on the side of my head, above my ear, and as a result of that, I can’t hear well. On top of that, I suffered a skull fracture between my nose and my eyebrow.”
Candela, who is currently looking for work after her food company went out of business, also said: “I am undergoing treatment for the issue of hearing, nutrition, and I have to undergo neurological exams.”
