London, Sep 14 (ANI): A French teenager was so lost sleeping between rail tracks that he did not even realise how close he was to death when a high-speed train passed over him.

According to the police, the driver of the TGV train between Paris and Quimper in Brittany noticed the 19-year-old man lying stretched out on his stomach between the rails when the train approached him close to the western town of Vannes.

However, the train was moving too fast to stop and thus continued for a further 900 yards.

It finally stopped after it passing right over the teenager, reports the Telegraph.

The driver left the train and checked out the teenager only to find out that he was unhurt.

But the man could not be woken and was taken by firemen to hospital in Vannes.

The police is hoping for an explanation about what happened after the young man regains consciousness.

The teenager who is from the area had a ticket in his pocket for a music festival, which finished in the early hours on Sunday. (ANI)
