A “wonder woman” whose leg was severed by a train in a “short-lived accident” amazingly managed to survive after pulling herself off the tracks.

Lisa Fitzgerald, 29, was struck by a train at the Morristown train station in New Jersey on May 5 while waiting in the “pouring rain” for a train to take her to New York City. In a “freak accident,” she was struck by the last cars of the train.




According to Lisa’s stepmother, Stacie Weil-Fitzgerald, she suddenly landed under the train. “A freak accident… somehow she ended up under the train,” she said. “Her leg was immediately severed.”

“She pushed herself onto the platform and waited there on the tracks,” Stacie described. “She crawled across, the poor thing.”

“She said, ‘I was so scared my hair would get caught in there and it would suck me back in,'” she added. “So she waited until the train stopped. She got up on the platform and started screaming for help.”

Remarkably, some commuters at the station simply walked past her and ignored her cries for help. It was only when a train conductor noticed her that someone finally came to her aid.
