Sometimes you stumble upon a ‘light through the cracks‘ story that you just couldn’t make up, even if you tried.

Last week, in the Netherlands, an empty metro train overran the barrier at the end of the tracks at a railway station. However, rather than plummeting into the water ten metres below, the train was left suspended mid-air, balancing on the plastic tail of a whale sculpture.

As the sculptor told reporters, after the driver escaped unharmed, “I could never have imagined it that way, but it saved the operator’s life.”

You can watch the the incredible tale of the whale’s tail’s epic catch here, and you can read more about it here and here.
