Drunken man sleeps through being run over by 8000-ton freight train and walks away without a scratch
still holding a beer.
Call it the luck of the drunk.
An inebriated man from Alberta, Canada, who was run over by 26 train cars while lying passed out on the tracks walked away unscathed.
Railway workers made several attempts to rouse the man and at first thought he was dead, but when one of the staff grabbed him by the arm, the man opened his eyes, the Toronto Star has reported.
‘The guy seemed to wake up and he got up, grabbed his beer and just walked away,’ Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sargent Dave Dubnyk told the National Post.
Jurors, please note context.

1. They say that god takes care of little children and drunks.
In this case, that seems to be true....although I am not sure I would call this guy Lucky, he has some real problems.
