Just a few feet from where the woman lay on the tracks, the train came to a stop.

"She owes life to God, not to me," Roxana Flores, the train's operator, told La Nacion. "But the fast reaction was important. I think there was a divine force that helped because if she had fallen like a second later, I wouldn't have been able to reach the brake."

With the train stopped, the other commuters were able to lift the woman off the tracks.

Both she and the man who fainted and knocked her onto the tracks were treated by paramedics and are expected to recover fully.
