(Scroll down for video) A woman is facing charges after she was run over by a train.

22-year-old Lynsey Horne of Salem, Alabama, who according to her Facebook works at the Irish Bred Pub Opelika, fell asleep on the train tracks.

Witnesses who saw the train racing towards he, called police to try to get the train to stop before the woman was run over.

However, the train was unable to stop on time. To everyone’s surprise Horne was unhurt when the train drove over her.

Officers arrived at the scene to find Horne passed out drunk on train tracks about 9:00 a.m. When Horne woke up, she was unaware of her brush with death.

Authorities said that her petite size and the length of the train probably prevented her from being hurt. Horne was taken to a hospital before she was taken to jail.

Horne was charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct for causing a disruption, as the train service was brought to a halt. An ambulance was called and a chopper was on standby.
