Woman Narrowly Escapes Being Struck By Oncoming Train

This video made me scream out loud!  She narrowly escapes with her life... According to the Mashable article: 

A pedestrian in New Zealand came just inches from being struck by a train because she didn't look both ways before crossing. Parents across the world are violently shaking their heads after reading that sentence. 

Officials for the Auckland Transport released footage of a distracted woman crossing the tracks at the Mount Eden station on Friday in an attempt to raise awareness for rail safety.  

In the clip, several people can be seen crossing the tracks as the warning lights flash in the corner. Eventually, a woman in a purple sweatshirt starts to stroll across the tracks. She can be seen looking to her right before she crossed, but not to her left. 

Thankfully, the woman does notice the train just before it strikes her, and she speeds up to avoid getting hit and escapes without injury. 

According to the New Zealand Herald, the station also had warning bells in addition to lights.
