Shocking CCTV footage has been released showing a woman dragged along by a metro train in Rome while the driver obliviously eats his lunch. The driver reportedly found out about the incident when he stopped at the next station.
Forty-three-year-old Natalya Garkovich can be seen stepping onto the train but then taking a step back as the doors are closing.
Natalya Garkovich was seriously injured when the bag got stuck in the train door. She was taken to a nearby hospital and was initially in intensive care. It is not known at this time whether she hit the far wall of the station, however amateur video also obtained by Corriere shows her prone body lying a short distance inside the tunnel at the far end of the station, presumably in the aftermath of the accident.
One man is seen trying to free her from the door before the train starts to gather speed.
Video footage shows him eating as passengers boarded the train.
Another Senator Has Resigned Following A Citizenship Balls-Up
In a statement, Ms Waters said she had not visited Canada since leaving as a baby and believed she had naturalised to Australia. The resignations mean the Greens have lost two of their strongest performers in Australian Parliament in less than a week.
"I know that I was wrong and I am devastated by what happened to that woman", Mr Tonelli told Italian daily Corriere della Sera which published the footage.
At least one person on board the train also pulled an emergency handle but the train failed to stop, according to local reports.
He is now under investigation, but authorities have not taken disciplinary action against him. The lady made a unusual manoeuver up and down, the security system has not reported anything to me and I left.
"The train driver respected protocol".
Stefano Bottoni, national secretary of trade union Sul, told news agency Ansa, that extra measures were needed to avoid a repeat of the accident.
