The Irish Independent reports that 16-year-old Maja Dabkowska had her headphones in, was rushing to catch her bus for school and didn't notice the Luas train coming as she made her way across the tracks. When she finally saw the oncoming train, she tried to scramble off the tracks, but her leg did not make it in time, and it got wedged in the space between the Luas and the platform.

Dbkowska posted a public picture of her injuries on her Facebook page. She thanked those that came to her rescue, saying, "No words to describe how thankful I am to all the people that picked the Luas up in order to get me out."
