A lucky commuter has been hailed a "miracle" after she fainted and fell under a moving train at a busy station but still survived.

The woman named only as Candela dodged death when she lost her balance in front of shocked onlookers at Independence Station in Gonzalez Catan, Argentina.

Incredible footage shows the moment that she collapsed before disappearing between two carriages at the station on the outskirts of Buenos Aires.

The CCTV clip saw several witnesses watch on in horror as they raised their hands to their heads in the gripping scenes.

Candela was rescued from the tracks as commuters crowded around her before she was sat down on the platform and taken away in a wheelchair once an ambulance arrived.

She has only just been able to see the images for herself after being told she was out of danger and being discharged from Buenos Aires Hospital Dr Alberto Balestrini.

She told an Argentinian TV station: “I suffered a sudden drop in blood pressure and fainted.

“I tried to warn the person in front of me but don’t remember anything else, even the moment I smashed into the train.

“I don’t know how I’m still alive. I’m still trying to make sense of it all.”

A witness to the incident said: “This girl has been reborn. It’s a miracle.

Two weeks ago, a man shared how he partly lost his hand after he drunkenly fell onto a train track and was hit by a train in the USA.

Jonathon Smith, 26, survived the ordeal after a cow pusher moved his unconscious body out the way instead of sucking it underneath, the Daily Star previously reported.

Speaking about his injury, he said: "I'm missing half my palm, they didn't just take off my fingers – it looks like an uber long finger!

"I've always been a more chilled out guy, appearance to me has never been a big thing.

"I'll put my finger right in your face like 'check that out!'"
