In the U.S. city of Springfield, Massachusetts, an elderly woman with his life saved his granddaughter from death under the wheels of a train. This is the website Masslive.com.
79-year-old Hilda Figueroa (Figueroa Hilda) and her 26-year-old granddaughter Hilda Sanchez (Hilda Sanchez) has returned home from the store and the hospital. A hundred meters from their house is a railroad. Locals crossing at informal crossing with no markings and warning signs. Figueroa and Sanchez did the same and got in the way of an approaching train.
He was driving unusually fast and didn’t give sound signals. Evaluation Sanchez, his speed was at least 160 kilometers per hour, which is twice the speed limit. Figueroa was the first to notice the threat. “She pushed me away from the rails, says Sanchez. I tried to pull her, but it was too late”. The train threw the elderly woman on 15 meters. She died in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.
Last year it was reported that in the U.S. city of Atlanta, Georgia, the girl jumped on the tracks before an oncoming train to save the mother. She took the woman out of the way, but not in time to retreat to a safe distance and fell under the train. Both were injured, but survived.
