A man in a medically induced coma after falling on a train in the Melbourne suburb of Flinders Street Station has been found, it was reported.
The incident occurred at around 7:30pm on Wednesday night, when the man, who is in his 40s, was lying on a carriage and had been hit by a train.
His wife, who was on the train with him, said she thought he had fallen from the train and had to call the emergency services.
“He was lying there, and I was just thinking he was just lying there and he was going to fall over the rail,” Ms Karyn told the ABC.
The couple was unable to reach their husband by phone until they went to the emergency room at Flinders Hospital, where they were treated and released.
Ms Karyns husband, who works in IT, was able to walk back to work, and was also able to speak to his wife.
“She was crying, she was crying and crying,” he said.
“I said ‘we need to call ambulance’.” He was later flown to Flinders Medical Centre in Melbourne, where he was treated for his injuries and released the following day.
Ms Sangeeta Karyna was also on the same train when the accident occurred.
“It’s been quite traumatic, and you never know what could happen,” she told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
“But I think everyone is very fortunate that we’re not dead.”
The ABC has contacted Flinders station for comment.
