Woman cheats death during train trip in Sri Lanka

A heart-stopping video has emerged of a woman narrowly avoiding getting hit by a huge rock while on a train in Sri Lanka.

The footage, shot in October last year, captures the moment Sarah, travel blogger from Nomadic Dreamer, nearly hits her head on a rock as she leans outside the carriage to take a video.

"Taking a beautiful train ride across Sri Lanka. In my attempt to get a nice video for my blog, I ended up being 0.2 seconds away from getting smashed by this huge rock that appeared from behind me," Sarah wrote online.

"I am one happy girl to be alive.." she added.
