LEBANON, Maine — Two teenagers lost limbs after they were struck by a train while sunbathing on a railroad trestle, authorities said.
A 13-year-old girl lost a leg below the knee and her 14-year-old friend’s foot was severed. Authorities say the teens, who were cutting class, fell asleep on the trestle while sunbathing, The Associated Press reported.
Neither of the girls appeared to be drunk and are considering the episode to be accidental, according to various media reports.
“Both have a long road to recovery and a follow-up interview will be done when it is suitable,” York County Sheriff’s Lt. Gary Fecteau said in a statement, according to MaineToday.com.
