A young boxing champion, Amina Bulakh was killed by a train after she crossed a railway line wearing headphones and browsing her smartphone.

According to the details, Amina Bulakh did not see the oncoming passenger service train until the moment she was fatally struck at the crossing in her Ukraine hometown.

The Ukrainian women’s youth champion tried to avoid the train but was hit and fatally wounded.

Amina had gone out to the pharmacy in her home village of Tarasivka, when the incident took place.

She was struck by the service, travelling from Kyiv to Fastov, as she walked over the track at a designated crossing.

Witnesses said she was browsing her mobile as she walked slowly seemingly oblivious to the danger until the last moment.

Ukraine police have launched a criminal investigation into her death.

“Tragic circumstances have taken the life of Ukraine youth female team member Amina Bulakh,” said the Boxing Federation of Ukraine.
