The 30-something-year-old woman was killed instantly by the train in the city of Zaporozhye Saturday morning as the couple stopped on their way home to have sex. Her 41-year-old male companion lost both legs, but survived to tell the tale.
The couple couldn’t get out of the way in time.
The Ukrainian Interior Ministry, which announced the Saturday morning accident, said the couple “failed to overcome their natural passion when walking home”.
The pair, officials said, “wanted to experience an extreme sensation near the railroad tracks.”
Reports are that they couple were drunk at the time.
They were returning home from a party at a friend’s house when they decided to stop on the tracks.
