Lucky man survives after being run over by train

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Talk about being lucky - a north Alabama man is
alive after being run over by a train on Thursday afternoon. Huntsville Fire
and Rescue officials said a train engineer spotted 61-year-old Arnold
Romine lying across railroad ties. Witnesses said the conductor sounded
the horn and tried to stop the train.

Firefighters said by the time the coal train was stopped, 8 rail cars had
passed over Romine's body.

Miraculously, he suffered what appeared to be minor injuries. He was later
treated and released at Huntsville Hospital.
