Train crushes NYSC member while pressing phone on Railway in Lagos

Female member of National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, was, yesterday, crushed by a train in Ikeja Local Government Area, Lagos State while pressing her phone.

Her body was serious mangled and left lying on the rail line. Due to the high rate of the incident, she is yet to be identified.

According to an eyewitness, an effort to drag her back when an oncoming train was approaching proved abortive as she was busy pressing her phone.

 “The train was not moving at a high speed. People tried to call her attention to the oncoming train but she didn’t yield to the call as she continued pressing her mobile phone.

“I was looking at her from where I stood and saw her with an earpiece plugged into her ears which made her unable to hear the sound of the oncoming train. Many passers-by tried to pull her out of the rail line but she ran towards the moving train which crushed parts of her body,”
