Two women in Indiana survived being run over by a freight train after being trapped on a railroad bridge.

The women were walking on the railroad tracks on the Shuffle Creek Trestle, a bridge over Lake Lemon near Bloomington, Indiana, on July 10 when the train approached, Fox 59 reported.

Trapped 80 feet above the water, the women laid down on the tracks, and the train passed over them. Afterward, they ran to a nearby car and drove away. They were later identified by law enforcement and might face criminal charges.

“The consequences of trespassing on railroad-owned property are never taken seriously by those choosing to do so, and this incident at Lake Lemon is one of the most glaring examples I’ve seen in more than 40 years in this business,” said Tom Hoback of the Indiana Rail Road Company said, Fox 59 reported.

According to the Daily Mail, one woman stubbed her toe, but they were not seriously hurt in the ordeal.

Indiana Railroad spokesman Eric Powell said the train was pulling 100 coal cars weighing about 14,000 tons and going about 24 miles per hour, the Daily mail reported. There is about 10 inches of clearance between the railroad ties and the locomotive.

The incident was recorded by a camera on the front of the train, and the disturbing video has gone viral. The women initially try to run to the end of the 500-foot bridge as the train whistle blares, but one of them trips and the other stops to help. Then they disappear from view beneath the train.
