The women had been walking along Shuffle Creek Trestle Bridge, a narrow railroad bridge 80 feet above a creek bed outside Bloomington, Indiana, at 6.30 am on July 10.Â
In danger: The two women couldn’t make it to the end of the railroad bridge before the train caught up with them. When one tripped, she had nowhere to go
When one of the women tripped on the tracks, she decided to lay flat in the middle of the ties. Her friend ran over to help, and then laid down as well. There is just ten inches of clearance underneath the train!
