BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WTHR) - A train engineer thought he killed two people as he was crossing a bridge.

However, what really happened is causing many people to call it a miracle.

From the train's security camera, it looked like two women's final moments were caught on tape.

"Now, you see the two subjects here. They're frankly running for their lives at this point in time," said Eric Powell, with Indiana Railroad.

Powell says the incident happened earlier this month on a 80-foot high Indiana Railroad bridge at Lake Lemon.

He says people will follow a trail up to the bridge, where they trespass onto the tracks.

There are no walkways on the bridge because no one is supposed to be walking there.

As the train tried to stop, the engineer saw the two women crawl out from underneath the cars.

He asked if the women were okay and one of them simply said she had stubbed her toe.

The women will be prosecuted for trespassing.
