A woman who attempted to commit suicide by jumping in front of a speeding metro train escaped without a scratch after the train somehow passed harmlessly over her head.

Footage of the incident, which took place on June 9th at a nearly deserted Delhi metro station, was captured by a nearby surveillance camera.

"She came to the station alone apparently to commit suicide," said a security official, referring to the unidentified 21-year-old.

Though a Delhi Metro Rail Corporation spokesperson called the woman's chances of survival "almost impossible," other DMRC officials have theorized that a "ditch or depression" in the exact spot where the woman landed ultimately saved her life.
