`The metal gods were smiling on Jesse Maggrah.
The 20-year-old man was walking beside railway tracks on Sunday, the Norwegian heavy metal band Gorgoroth cranked on his portable CD player, when he was hit by a freight train. [..]
He has several broken ribs, one which is poking into a lung, his doctors have told him. Maggrah is also very sore and stiff, and is having trouble walking.
Maggrah said he didn’t hear the train over his music and he didn’t feel anything through the ground.
“Maybe the metal gods above were smiling on me and they didn’t want one of their true warriors to die on them. Otherwise, I’d be up there in the kingdom of steel.”‘
