Drunk man survives being run over by train

FOND DU LAC, Wis. – Police said a highly intoxicated man who survived when multiple freight train cars rolled over him is "the luckiest guy alive." Police Major Kevin Lemke said Canadian National Railway employees reported they ran over someone lying between the tracks and did an emergency stop about 10:30 p.m. Thursday.

Officers found a 42-year-old local man in some bushes 20 feet away from the tracks. The man indicated he was walking when he saw the train and jumped out of the way.

But Lemke said he tends to believe the employees over an intoxicated man. The man had no serious injuries and received a trespassing citation.

Canadian National spokesman Patrick Waldron said such an incident usually results in serious or fatal injury.
