Injuries and deaths due to accidents are inescapable in the modern way of living. The accidental deaths are mostly due to the road traffic, but the deaths due to railway fatalities are also not negligible, especially in the areas where railway traffic is high. Southern railways are major mode of transportation of the passengers and goods; consequently, the incidences of railway fatalities and mishaps are also high in South India. Most of the reported cases of railway deaths led to the conclusion that either the victim was directly hit by the train or died due to some other reason, but the body was recovered in the vicinity of the railway platforms. Here, we are discussing the injuries in a young pregnant woman in a train and pedestrian accident, where the injury to the abdomen resulted into the expulsion of preterm fetus and death of pregnant woman.
Key words: Railway accident, death, delivery, autopsy.
