This is the moment a woman loses her foot when she tries to jump onto a moving train and falls onto the tracks.
The incident was filmed at Kavkazskaya railway station in the city of Kropotkin in the south-western Russian region of Krasnodar Krai when the unnamed person, reportedly a woman, was trying to catch a train to the city of Grozny.
In the footage, the 35-year-old woman appears to be following a male passenger as they run along the platform.
While they both jump on the moving train and the man enters the carriage, the woman loses her footing and falls on the track.
The train is then seen passing over the woman.
According to local media, she lost her foot as a result of the incident.
In addition, reports said that the train did not have a conductor present who should have been in charge of passengers’ safety.
The local authorities are investigating the incident.
Netizen ‘Ksy888’ said: “The conductor should have locked all the doors straight away to avoid a situation like this. It is terrifying when people attempt things like that.”
‘Pushkin’ commented: “Damn, she was so clumsy.”
