Video: The terrifying moment a Dublin schoolgirl lies trapped under a 41-tonne tram


This is the terrifying moment a Dublin schoolgirl lies trapped under a 41-tonne tram. The unnamed girl screams in terror until she is dramatically rescued by passengers and passers-by who tip the huge LUAS tram up to free her. The incident happened at the Jervis Street shopping centre stop in Dublin city centre around 9am this morning on the Red Line route. The girl can be heard screaming in pain and shock as the tram traps her by her legs against the stone platform. The amazing footage shows commuters rallying together and making at least three attempts before successfully pushing the tram off the terrified schoolgirl. Reports say that she suffered relatively minor injuries and was taken to the Mater Hospital as a precautionary measure. The dramatic footage was filmed and posted on social media by Lukasz Pigula in Dublin.
