A PREGNANT woman was killed after suffering a suspected blackout and tumbling onto train tracks.
Rosarin Plianlar had been waiting at the station holding her phone before falling forwards and plunging some four feet onto the rails below.
Commuters desperately tried to warn the oncoming train driver to stop but it ran straight over the 31-year-old – killing her instantly.
Rescuers who identified Rosarin, who was six months pregnant, and informed her husband who said she had recently been suffering from blackouts and dizziness.
They are still investigating how she came to fall onto Airport Rail Link tracks at the Thai Chang station in Bangkok, Thailand at 7am this morning.
Friends said she had been unwell recently and suffering dizziness and a number of blackouts thought to have been caused by her pregnancy.
Jakchai Banyensakul from the Ruamkatanyu Rescue Foundation which attended the incident said it is investigating.

He said: ‘’The woman had been dizzy recently and had fainted before.
“Friends think this is what caused it and other people at the station say she jumped onto the tracks.
”Her husband had just dropped her off at the train station to go to work. She used the station most days.
‘’The person standing behind her said she had been holding her phone then stepped forwards.
‘’The driver said he used the brakes to stop the train but it could not stop moving until it came to the woman.
‘’We don’t know why she didn’t reply to people calling out to her when she was on the ground. There is still some investigation to do.”
Wisut Chanmanee, the boss of SRT Electrified Train Co which runs the service, said the driver needed at least 100m to perform an emergency stop.
Wisut said the State Railway of Thailand would help the family with funeral costs but would investigate whether the death was an accident or a suicide.
