A woman is lucky to be alive after she fell off a platform and landed on tracks just as a train arrived.

The woman can be seen standing beside the track before walking towards the train as it starts to pull into the station.

But instead of stopping at the edge, she carries on and plunges onto the tracks, with her body falling across the rails.

The next moment, a train arrives and runs over the place where she was lying in what seems to spell a quick death.

Yet incredibly, she reportedly emerged unscathed apart from some scratches and bruising after her body was pushed forwards and sideways by the train.

According to reports, terrified witnesses reported the incident to station staff and firefighters quickly arrived at the scene expecting the worst.

However, the woman was conscious and had only sustained light abrasions. She was taken to the hospital for further treatment.

The reason for the fall is still to be determined.

The video footage has gained a lot of attention online, with one viewer saying: "This girl is really dead, and it is incredible that such a serious accident only resulted in a small scratch."

The news comes just days after another woman was filmed falling under a moving train in Argentina.

CCTV cameras captured the heart-stopping moment she fell between the locomotive and the platform on March 29, at the Independencia station near Buenos Aires.

Commuters watched on in horror, but were stunned when train station staff pulled her from the tracks alive.
