Teen makes phone call after being hit by train after jumping on tracks to retrieve dropped phone11:57
A teen nearly died trying to rescue her cell phone.
Chenelle Agnew, 17, was standing at a subway stop in Brooklyn on Thursday when her precious cell phone slipped out of her hands and dropped onto the tracks, reports the New York Post.
Agnew made the decision to save her phone from peril and jumped onto the tracks at the Bergen St. stop to retrieve it. That"s when a train barreled into the station - and ran over Agnew and her phone.
Agnew was hit by an incoming northbound train and went straight under the car - but she survived with minimal injury - as did her phone.
Agnew was pulled from the tracks by emergency service crews.
Pictures of the phone-loving teen on the stretcher show her staring intently at her beloved device.
She, and the phone, were taken to a nearby hospital where they are both expected to recover.
