Sup Travellers?! Do you believe in miracles? If you don't then I'm sure this news story coming out of Manhattan will change your whole perspective.

According to reports from the New York Post, 22 year old Mary Downey had a close encounter with death when she drunkenly fell on to a train track in the path of an oncoming train at the 49th Street N/Q/R subway station in Manhattan. 

Shortly after the first train ran over her, another two passed and ran over her as well. In normal instances, Downey should have been dead but she managed to miraculously survive the ordeal with only a few injuries to show for it.

Downey was only discovered when the third conductor managed to spot her weakly waving her arms for help. Paramedics quickly arrived at the scene and rushed her by ambulance to Bellevue Hospital, where she was treated for a busted shoulder.

“She’s doing really well,” said a pal, who refused to identify herself, at the hospital. “She just fractured her shoulder.”

Downey was wheeled out hours later with her arm in a black sling and dressed in a hospital-issued blue T-shirt and gray sweatpants and flanked by a group of friends.

How does one survive being run over by a train? I don't know but Downey is really lucky that she did without any permanent damage. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
