Heart Stopping Moment Oblivious Woman Crossing Tracks Leaps Out of The Way.

Heart-stopping moment oblivious woman crossing tracks leaps out of the way with just a SECOND to spare as a train hurtles toward her. A woman has made a narrow escape after she jumped out of the way of a speeding train as she crossed the tracks with only milliseconds to spare The train was passing through Mount Eden station in Auckland, New Zealand, on Friday and the driver was forced to apply emergency brakes as he spotted the woman brazenly crossing at the last minute. Heart-stopping footage shows the unknown woman - who is wearing a pink, hooded jacket - look right as the stepped over the tracks despite warning bells lighting up, and then leap out of the way in a blind panic. The footage shows a man and two women hastily jogging over the tracks as the warning lights start to flash. The woman in the pink jumper then attempts to cross, ignoring the flashing lights. She appears to only look to her right, despite the train travelling from the left, and dashes across before noticing the bright yellow carriage was inches away from her. The train driver was forced to slam on the emergency brakes and misses the woman by seconds. After footage of the near miss emerged, Auckland Transport Rail Services Manager Craig Inger said all pedestrians need to take care around the rail network because of the high number of trains in Auckland. 'We've checked the footage of this morning's incident and we can see the woman checked to her right before crossing but not to her left and that's where the train was coming from,' Mr Inger said. 'It's really important that that you check both directions before crossing, a train can come from either direction.' Mr Inger also pointed out the 'disturbing' number of other people that crossed before the woman, even though the lights were on and the bells were sounding.
