I'm not sure if this counts as good or bad luck:
Boy impaled on branch after being hit by train
December 16, 2003 - 9:16AM
A 10-year-old boy was critically injured when he was impaled on a branch after being hit by a train and thrown into a tree.
The boy was riding his bicycle beside rail lines at Taree, in mid-northern NSW, yesterday when an XPT travelling at 80 kph rounded the bend and struck him.
The child was thrown into a tree and impaled. He was conscious when emergency crews arrived, police said.
He underwent surgery at Manning Base hospital for pelvic and abdominal injuries. He also suffered a broken leg.
After surgery, the boy was transferred to Randwick Children's Hospital in Sydney, where he remains critically ill.
The accident happened about 5.45pm (AEDT) yesterday.
Police said the train driver tried frantically to stop the locomotive but could not do so in time.
Passengers did not witness the accident, which briefly delayed trains.
