BEIJING: An elderly Chinese man miraculously survived after he put himself in the path of an oncoming train in a station in northeastern China on Sunday.
The man, in his 70 or 80s, was seen on security footage leaping off the platform at the Jinmalu light-rail train station in Dalian, Liaoning province, seconds before a train arrived.
The train ran over him, but he survived as he had fallen in between the tracks and avoided getting hit, the report said. The train stopped at the station after the incident, and the man was pulled to safety by firefighters who arrived soon after.
The man was found to be in a stable condition and the light-rail train service resumed operations after the disruption. An investigation is underway.
