She is knocked flat on her face and the train passes over her.The teen she runs out of time to cross to the other side, panics and simply turns away from the train as it hits her from behind.

The waiting commuters do not have enough time to save her and can only watch in horror as she disappears under the middle of the locomotive.

But despite their fears she had been killed, the woman was pulled almost uninjured from beneath the train.

Her only wound was a cut near her left eye.

Railway police inspector Ashok Bhorade said: "As she was busy over the phone, she didn't hear a goods train thundering down the tracks.

"When she suddenly looked up the train had already reached her. She panicked and ran first towards the platform and then straight into the train."

Ms Natekar was taken to Rajawadi Hospital in Mumbai but she is not thought to have been seriously injured.
