Downey, who now lives in Woodlawn, Bronx, managed to survive being crushed to death by three oncoming trains after she rolled into the small gap that sits between the different train tracks.

According to police sources, Downey broke her shoulder after falling onto the tracks, but luckily for the Irish woman in question, that was the extent of her injuries…

“She was lucky enough to have, it looks like to us, rolled to the platform and was in between the platform and the train when the train came into the station,” said FDNY Battalion Chief Mike Meyers.
