Earlier this week, a drunk man, sleeping in the middle of railroad tracks in an upstate New York town, got run over by a slow-moving freight train, state police said. Apparently, the man was fine.

According to police, Aaron Collins, 38, of Stillwater, was sleeping on the tracks in Schaighticoke, NY around 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday when a 7,000-foot-long Pan Am freight train approached, WNYT reports. The conductor stopped the train when he saw Collins, but not before the first two engines passed over the sleeping man.

After the engines were separated, Collins was found to be uninjured (but still drunk). “When you’re drunk, your body goes fairly limp,” said Sgt. Victoria Lovett.

WNYT reports he was flown to Albany Medical Center for a precautionary evaluation. Collins could face charges.
