LISBON -- An elderly woman walked away without a scratch after being run over by a train in Portugal, local media reported on Monday.
Maria Delores Ramos, 77, slipped as she attempted to cross the railway near her home in the northern village of Barroselas, the daily Jornal de Noticias reported.
She could not get up on her own as she suffers from arthritis in her legs, so she sat in the middle of the track to wait for someone to pass by.
"Other people quickly arrived and raised me off the ground and held on to me but I told them I didn't need them to hold on to me, that I could stay up on my own," she said. "I can brag that I survived being run over by a train."
