LUCKNOW: A mother's affection for her child has no comparison. In a heart-rending incident, a woman flung her son to safety when she saw a train nearing her and death seemed unavoidable.
The 30-year-old woman died while her six-year-old son suffered serious injuries at a railway level crossing in Niralanagar under Hasanganj police station on Thursday noon.
Hasanganj inspector Uday Veer Singh said the railway crossing was manned and the woman was trying to avoid the main gateway of the crossing to take a shortcut from the bushes.
to police, victim Paijani Pandey of Niralanagar was crossing the manned railway tracks with her son Sanidhya Pandey under the flyover connecting Puraniya. She was on way to pick her nine-year-old daughter from CMS.
"The local Memu train heading towards Barabanki was on the tracks. The woman didn't see it and started crossing the track. When she realised that the train had come too close, she pushed her son off the tracks, but could not get enough time to cross herself and was hit by the train. She was cut in two pieces while her son suffered injuries and fell unconscious there," they told to police.
Pandey's husband Rajnish Kumar, a bank employee, was inconsolable.
