drunk on tracks

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WYFF) Police responding to a report of a man being hit by a train say what they found on the tracks near Spartanbug, South Carolina was “a miracle”.

“Of course, we thought the worst,” said Captain Art Littlejohn.

Police said they got to the scene and eventually found a man asleep on the tracks under the third rail car behind the engine.

Police said they had to wake him up, despite the fact that the engine and a few cars passed over him.

Officers said the man’s alcoholic beverage container was next to him, unspilled.

“It was actually unbelievable that he had no injuries at all,” Littlejohn said.
