If it wasn't for her fluro pink top she may have lost her life as well as both her legs.

But if the young Australian hadn’t been wearing a bright pink top at the time, she could have lost her life too.

A New York Port Authority spokesman confirmed Visaya was struck about 4am on January 11 at the 14th St station and suffered head and lower body injuries. This photo was taken hours before Visaya's accident, showing the pink shirt she was wearing. Picture: Pat Hoffie/Facebook“When the first train had rolled across her unconscious body 20 minutes earlier, her black puffy jacket and black jeans had made her invisible to the driver,” Ms Hoffie explained.

“She has a pseudoaneurysm in the femoral artery leading into her brain and this is being monitored by the neck brace she will have to wear for many months to come, and aspirin to avoid blood clotting.“I am currently in ICU with her where she is undergoing a series of procedures and further operations.”
