MOSCOW, September 29 (RIA Novosti) – An attempt to spice up their sexual life went badly wrong for a middle-aged couple in central Ukraine, which was run over by a train when having sex on the railroad tracks, local police said.
The woman died on the spot, while the man lost both legs and was hospitalized, the country’s Interior Ministry said on its website.
The man and his girlfriend “failed to overcome their natural passion when walking home … and wanted to experience an extreme sensation near the railroad tracks,” the ministry cited the surviving victim as saying.
The duo were run over by a switcher locomotive, the report said, adding that the incident took place in the city of Zaporozhye on early Saturday morning. The ministry did not release the victims’ names, saying only that the man was 41 and the woman appeared to be a thirtysomething.
