Drunk Man Survives Being Run Over by Train

Falling asleep on train tracks generally isn't a good idea, especially when an 8,000-ton freight train is hurtling toward you.

But one lucky drunk who passed out on a railway line in Alberta, Canada, ignored this piece of advice and still lived to tell the tale.

The man not only survived being run over by 26 train cars; he was still holding his beer when rescuers found him.

An engineer on the Canadian Pacific Railway freight train saw the man on the tracks and hit the emergency brakes, but was unable to stop the speeding train in time.

When it finally screeched to a halt, workers found the man sleeping peacefully under the 26th carriage.

The man, who is believed to have survived the incident because of his slight stature, woke up, grabbed his beer, and shambled off the tracks.

Another missed opportunity for Darwin...
