A blind man survived a fall onto a Los Angeles subway track on Thursday, laying down on the tracks st the train arrived.
The man fell from the platform as a Red Line train approached a stop in the city’s Koreatown neighborhood, the Associated Press reports. Two train cars passed over the 47-year-old man, who has not yet been identified, before the train was able to stop.
Paul Gonzales, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority, called it a “miraculous occurrence,” the AP reports. “The man is exceedingly lucky to be alive,” he said.
