A teenage girl has survived being hit by a train despite her skull being cracked open when she was hit by a train.
Ely Hayati, 16, was posing for a picture behind three friends next to a railway line in Indonesia.
The moment she was hit by the train was caught on camera and her friends can be seen reacting immediately.
They are said to have been walking along the tracks in Purjworejo in the Java province when they stopped to pose for a picture.
Ely Hayati, who can be seen standing behind the group, was struck on the head by the passing train as one of her friends took the pictures using a selfie stick.
The girls said their friend flew several metres after being struck by the train.
Subsequent images show her lying injured on the ground with her gaping wound partially visible under an item of clothing.
She was rushed to a local hospital by the police and pictures show her scalp having been sewn back together.
She will require further medical attention and doctors have yet to report whether she will suffer from any long-term brain damage.
Local authorities did not clarify whether the girls were walking in a restricted area next to the tracks.
