 A 27-year-old woman, who had a miraculous escape after walking into a moving freight train while texting on her mobile phone, would probably be needing a new emoji to convey her ordeal.

According Huffington Post reports, Police say, Sheena Keynna appeared to be texting Monday afternoon as she walked around the crossing gates and into the path of the passing freight train in Lakeland in central Florida.

Police Sgt. Gary Gross told the Ledger of Lakeland the woman "wasn't paying attention." She suffered a compound fracture to her right arm, and her right leg was injured.

She was taken to a hospital, but no additional information was available.

CSX spokeswoman Kristin Seay says the train had two locomotives and was carrying consumer goods from Winter Haven to Jacksonville.

Two Amtrak trains were delayed during the investigation.
