Woman busy on phone falls in front of train

A passenger in Madrid, Spain was captured falling onto the path of an oncoming train while distracted by her phone.

The surveillance footage released by Metro de Madrid on October 24 shows the moment that the unnamed passenger, busy on her phone, walks right off the edge of the platform and falls onto the railway tracks as a train approaches.

The incident occurred at Estrecho station in northern Madrid.

In the video, onlookers run to help the woman as a train approaches from one side. The video ends just as commuters rush forward to help her, so it is not immediately clear whether the train stops in time.

News reports said that the woman was not seriously injured in the incident.

After the incident railway officials warned commuters to be careful on railway stations.
