Shaken, not stirred.

No, it’s not James Bond asking for his martini.

That was the condition of an elderly man after a goods train ran over him for three minutes as he lay on his back on the track.

The incident happened at Satna railway station on Sunday. One Radheysham, who lives in Satna’s Jawahar Nagar, was trying to cross the track between two platforms.

When he crawled under the goods trains to reach the platform number 1, the train started moving. He immediately laid down on the track with his limbs parallel to the tracks as the train rumbled on for three minutes.

Some people who were witness to this incident started shooting it on their mobile phones. The clip was later widely shared on social media. After the train passed, an onlooker rushed to the track to help him get up and walk away. He did not suffer any injury.

Talking to media persons a visibly shaken Raadheshyam said he was alive with God’s grace. He claimed he didn’t know what happened with him and how he came under the train.
