Drunken Alberta man survives after he’s run over by 26 rail cars
A drunken Alberta man who passed out on the train tracks was somehow uninjured after being run over by a train on Sunday evening.
The man, from Crowsnest Pass, Alta., was spotted between the rails just outside of Elko in southeast British Columbia by the Canadian Pacific train conductor who sounded the horn and hit the emergency brakes.
“The guy seemed to wake up and he got up, grabbed his beer and headed on his way,” said RCMP Sgt. Dave Dubnyk. (Photo: The Canadian Press/Files)
