(Man run over by a train, and survives)….His injuries, however, were described as life threatening.

The 31 year old was laying on the tracks in Winterhaven recently. The train had departed Yuma at around 6:00 am. The engineer reported seeing the man. He sounded the horn on the train and he slammed on the breaks, but could not stop in time. The train passed over the man. Union Pacific crews, Sheriff’s Deputies and Winterhaven firefighters searched for the man. He was eventually found, still under the train. Paramedics say he suffered head and other injuries, described as life threatening. He was transported to Yuma Regional Medical Center, and then flown to a Phoenix area hospital. At last word, the man was still alive. His identity has not been released.
