A young man who almost lost his life after being involved in a head-on collision with an oncoming train in Lagos, Nigeria decided to share the testimony of his survival.
According to the man identified as Oladimeji Omo Balogun, he had been on his way out of Lagos, enroute Abeokuta, Ogun state, when he was hit by the train.
He had been trying to cross the train track in his Sienna, when he noticed the train coming at a speed of 500km/hr and was about 50 metres away from him when he was hit.
Even though his car was badly hit, Balogun who only sustained a minor injury to his neck, is more than happy to be alive.
Sharing the news about his experience on his Facebook page, Balogun wrote:
"My Experience'.... EXCLUSIVE
About this time yesterday (1. 30pm.. Saturday, 15th of July, 2017), I was coming from Elder Dapo Adeyemi son's wedding ceremony in Alakuko, Lagos, to attend Chief Olusegun Osoba's 78th birthday in Abeokuta.

As we were trying to cross the rail track between Obada Oko and Adigbe in our vehicle, out of nowhere, all of a sudden, without any notice, we found a train 50 metres away from our vehicle. HEAD ON, we were hit by this train that is probably running at 500klm/hour.
I passed out, but to the glory of God, I woke up less than 5min after the collision and walked out of the CONDEMNED car unscathed except for a minor pain in my neck.
What else can I say than to thank Him! Emi ki y'io ku iku kiku kan bi ki se yiye...The struggle continues. This AOB is specially created by God!"
