A TEENAGER had a leg severed after falling between two rail carriages before the train pulled out of a suburban Melbourne station.
Ambulance Victoria said the boy, who was with a friend, fell from the area between two carriages as the train pulled out of Eltham station about 9.40pm (AEST) yesterday.
Paramedics worked on the victim at the scene in a bid to save his leg before taking him to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
An Ambulance Victoria spokesman said despite the shocking injuries, the teenager was very lucky not to have been more seriously hurt.
"His leg has been pretty badly severed but it's surprising that he hasn't got life-threatening injuries, given the circumstances," spokesman Ray Rowe said.
No further details about the accident were available.
