A video of a woman almost being run over as she scrambles to board moving train in Nairobi’s Muthurwa area has emerged online.
In the undated video shared by Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, the woman is seen trying to board the train which is in motion.
She almost manages to board the train but a slight scramble with another passenger sees her fall down and misses being hit by the train by a whisker.
She, however, gets up hurriedly as a man who witnessed the incident warns her to be careful:
Here are some of the reactions to the video:
Jane Njuguna: Oh my my let her go and praise Jehovah for it was by a whisker she is alive.
Meshak Meshak: I believe she prayed for God’s protection in the morning & our merciful God remembered her….otherwise that was a close-shave.
Chepkewel Emmanuel: The lady is trying the best to save time and punishment from her employers..Thank God she escaped injuries or even death.
Bernard M Mwangangi: Some years back I tried this and missed. luckily, I was thrown into a pool of murky water and I was soaked from head to toe. I didn’t go to work.
Esther Mcjosh: This woman is very lucky she fell off the last coach ??it could have been something else in the middle of the coaches.
