A yet to be identified female member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) was yesterday knocked down by a moving train in Ikeja area of Lagos State.

The accident, which attracted the attention of people along the railway line, left the body of the accident victim seriously mangled.

According to an eye witness account, “the train was not moving at a high speed. People tried to call her attention to the incoming train but she didn’t yield to the call as she continued pressing her mobile phone”.

He also further stated that “I was looking at her from where I stood and saw her with an ear piece plugged into her ears which made her unable to hear the sound of the incoming train. Many passers-by tried to pull her out of the rail line but she ran towards the moving train which crushed parts of her body”.

Our correspondents learnt that though her case seemed hopeless, she was later rushed to the hospital for medical attention by some people.

As at the time of filing this report, the name of the female corps member and the hospital where she was taken to was kept secret by officials of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
