Woman dragged under train in terrifying accident

A 28-year-old woman was dragged under a Tube train at Clapham South Underground Station in London.

The passenger's coat got caught in the door and she was pulled under the train as she tried to board a London Underground train at around 8am when the terrifying accident happened.

A witness said the woman decided the carriage was too busy and stepped off back onto the platform.

But her coat got caught in the doors and she was pulled along for several metres before the train stopped, falling between the train and platform in the process.



A City worker who saw the terrifying incident said: "The platform wasn't overcrowded - it was the same as any other day. Her screams were blood-curdling. The kind of screams that don't leave you."

The train was evacuated as emergency services rushed to the scene.

Fire crews were forced to use specialist equipment to extricate the woman from under the carriage and took her to hospital.

It is understood the woman suffered a shoulder injury but is expected to make a full recovery.

The incident led to major delays during rush hour.
