According to a news report by Lokmat News18, in Hoshangabad, in Maharashatra, a woman has died while crossing the track at a railway crossing, in spite of the crossing being closed for traffic, which is a sign that a train is going to pass by any time.

The woman in question was carrying a bag and had earphones on. Hence she could not hear the sound from outside.

She looked at one direction — possibly expecting the train to come from that side — and began to walk across. She then crossed two tracks.

She didn’t realise that the train was coming on the third track from the other side.

According to bystanders, the train which was moving in full speed, blew its horn several times. The locals, panicked and screamed, even made hand gestures from both sides.

But she could not hear anything because of her earphones.

In fact, she saw the train coming in the nick of time, and tried to cross the track quickly. But she misjudged the timing, and died on the spot.

The CCTV footage of this shocking incident has surfaced. This heart-stopping visual is a firm reminder on why it is so dangerous to cross the train track, and why earphones could kill, literally.
