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.
Its unclear why Romine was lying on the tracks.
