A 27-year-old woman had a miraculous escape after walking into a moving freight train while texting on her mobile phone.

Police Sgt. Gary Gross told the Ledger of Lakeland the woman ‘wasn’t paying attention.’
She suffered a compound fracture to her right arm, and her right leg was injured.
She was taken to a hospital, but no additional information was available.
