A few years ago there were reports of a man who had fallen from a subway platform just as the train was coming into the station. The train pinned this guy between itself and the platform base, which are only four or something inches apart. The man reportedly was wedged in that four inch space from the waist down and survived long enough for his wife to get there so he could say goodbye. This has UL written all over it yet snopes has nothing on it.
Did this really happen?
And if it did, how can a full grown man possibly fit into such a small space without dying instantly? Is it anatomically possible?
