Svetlana Yurkova had fallen asleep between the tracks after celebrating her 32nd birthday. Onlookers called the emergency services after seeing Yurkova get run over, and were convinced she was dead.

Svetlana later said: "I'd had a few drinks and felt sleepy and just lay down on what I thought was the ground.

"It felt very comfortable, but I later found out it was between two rail tracks and an express train went over me during the night. I didn't even hear it.

"The doctors said it was a good job I was so hard asleep because otherwise I would have woken up with the sound of the train and got my head knocked off."
