Karnataka Mother, Son’s Narrow Escape As Train Whizzes Past
A woman and her son narrowly escaped death as they huddled against the wall of a station platform in Karnataka as a bullet train raced across the same tracks they were crossing.
The duo were crossing the tracks at Kalaburgi station to get to the platform when the train ran on the same track.
They couldn’t immediately climb over the platform, instead, the two sat by its wall waiting for the train to pass.
A video circulating online shows the boy sitting against the wall of the platform hugging his mother as the train passed.
A crowd of passengers gathered at the platform looked relieved as the mother and daughter escaped unhurt.
