On a happier note than the Cementery story, being absolutely trashed safed this guy. Although he probably wouldn't have been in the situation if he was sober.

Passing Cargo Train Fails to Wake Drunk Russian on Rail Tracks
Created: 05.09.2005 12:34 MSK (GMT +3), Updated: 12:34 MSK

A Russian man who fell asleep on rail tracks did not wake up when a 40-carriage cargo train passed over him, which saved his life, Interfax reported Monday.

The man, 23, had drunk too much and fallen asleep between railway tracks near the village of Dmitrievka in Russias Far Eastern region of Amur.

The train driver saw a man lying on the rails and used the emergency brake, but the train still went over the mans body. Luckily it managed to pass over without even as much as scratching the man, the local law enforcement agency told Interfax.

When the train then came to a halt it caused an unexpected problem: the low-profile carriages made it impossible to pull the still sleeping man from under the train. The train then had to be started again until all the carriages passed by and the man was rescued.

Rescue workers say the fact that the man did not wake up probably saved his life, Interfax added.

I'll bet he didn't believe that one afterwards.
