Model Train Accident Puts Man in the Hospital

conductor on large train

All aboard! Next stop — emergency room! A massive model train, set up in the backyard of a UK man, put him in the hospital after it crashed on top of him.

The unidentified man was riding his model train when it derailed from its  tracks and tumbled off a garden wall. The locomotive landed on top of the 70-year-old man, trapping him underneath it.

Paramedics were alerted to the scene and it took nearly 30 minutes to extract the man from the wreckage. He was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of abdominal and pelvic injuries. We’re glad he survived the crash but the embarrassment could eventually kill him.
