Russian survives snooze on train track

A Russian man who fell asleep between train tracks failed to wake up when a 140-tonne cargo train passed over him.

Vladimir Rasimov passed out and fell asleep between the tracks as he took a short cut home after going out with some friends in a bar.

Cargo train
The train driver saw somebody on the line and braked sharply. When rescuers tried to pull the drunken sleeper from underneath the carriages the man was still sleeping. Unfortunately the rescuers failed and the train had to carry on to free him.

Train driver Vladimir Slabiy said: "I saw a man lying between the tracks and tried to stop, but it was too late. The train went right over him and I thought he must have been killed."

"But when I got out and checked he was still lying there fast asleep."

"If he had woken up from the noise of the train he would have lifted his head and been hit by the undercarriage and that would have been the end of him. It was lucky he was so drunk."
