MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19 NOW/AP) -

Police say an Ohio man is lucky to be alive after he overdosed and fell in between a set of railroad tracks.

Fire officials say Jesse O'Neill, 46, overdosed and fell on the tracks Friday night in Middletown.

The conductor of a Norfolk-Southern train told police he saw the man lying in the tracks, but by the time he was able to stop all 29 rail cars had passed over him.

Middletown paramedics were able to revive O'Neill with a dose of the opioid-overdose antidote naloxone. He was taken to Atrium Medical Center, telling paramedics and officers he did not remember the train passing over him.

Police say the man has been charged with disorderly conduct, criminal trespass and inducing panic.
