THIS is the shocking moment an oblivious teenager is knocked over after unknowingly stepping in front of a tram.
The young woman, 18, was wearing headphones as she stepped onto a crossing as a tram approached.
She strolled in front of the tram before being knocked to the floor as it came to a braking halt.
The near-death incident took place in northern Turkish state of Samsun.
The woman told Turkish media: “I put the headset to distract myself, but I almost died because of it.”
The incident took place in September last year but has since resurfaced on social media.
A security camera showed her looking in the opposite direction as the tram approached, before noticing it as it was just inches away.
She attempted to run out of the way, but was clipped by the tram and fell to the floor.
A number of concerned members of the public then rushed to her aid, but she did not suffer any serious injuries.
The train driver said in a statement: “The accident occurred around 08:00 in the morning, while I was approaching Paruthan station in the direction of Line 1, I applied the handbrake, while the young woman was passing without looking to her right or left.”
She added: “I sounded the siren, however, when the girl did not hear me, I applied the emergency brake, which is a strong brake.”
