VIDEO: Train nearly hits woman

OISTERWIJK, NORTH BRABANT, Netherlands (NBC/RTV) — Security camera footage from the Netherlands shows a woman who came within seconds of being hit by a train.

Rail company ProRail released the video Tuesday of a group of people crossing the tracks as the crossing arm comes down. The video was recorded in 2011.

Some people get across the tracks, and one woman tries to follow them.

She ducks under the crossing arm, but quickly jumps back seconds before a train roars past.

ProRail is starting work on a tunnel at the same location.
