A Thai woman died late Thursday after being hit by a train while taking a selfie on the railway track, police said.

Walailak Sukuma, 28, was proclaimed dead at a Bangkok hospital hours after an oncoming train hit the woman and her friend while the pair was taking a selfie, Wissanusak Suebin, a police investigator in charge of the case, said on Friday.

Walailak's right leg was cut off by the train's wheels, while her friend, 24-year-old Amnaj Nawantip, suffered a head injury and a broken arm, Wissanusak said.
