    Yeah, that might make it a tad difficult to receive calls. Assuming she would have called him anyway.

    These are 2 of the luckiest women I’ve ever heard of. They were trespassing on a train trestle when a train came along and began running. One tripped up and nearly fell off into the gorge below but her foot got hung up on the bridge and her friend pulled her up then they began running again and then lay down between the track where the train proceeded to run over them and they were unhurt!
