ZAPOROZHYE, Ukraine, Sept. 29 (UPI) -- An impromptu fling on a railroad track in Ukraine proved deadly deadly for a couple that was run over by a train, police said.

A woman was killed and her boyfriend lost his legs when they were struck by a switcher locomotive while having sex on the tracks early Saturday.

The Ukraine Interior Ministry said in a written statement that the man told police in Zaporozhye they had "failed to overcome their natural passion when walking home ... and wanted to experience an extreme sensation near the railroad tracks."

RIA Novosti said the ministry did not release the names of the 41-year-old man and his "thirty-something" companion.
