Legless woman falls onto Boston train tracks

In case you're wondering just how drunk you have to be to get youself almost squashed by a train, check out the sensational CCTV footage from local TV outfit WCVBtv.

For added entertainment, there are alternative CCTV views here and here.

And yes, we gather smoking isn't allowed in the station either, so we look forward to seeing the rap sheet for this one. ®
