BELLEVIEW, Fla.- Authorities say a young woman lost her right arm after being struck by a train in north Florida.
    
The Marion County Sheriff's Office reports that woman was apparently drunk and upset about a recent breakup when she was lying next to a train track in Belleview early Wednesday morning.
    
A conductor told deputies that they began blowing the train's horn when they saw the woman, but they couldn't stop the 6,000-foot CSX freight train before hitting her. Once the train finally did stop, two conductors found the woman, pulled her from under the train and used a belt to make a tourniquet for her arm.
    
The woman was taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition.
    
The Ocala Star-Banner (http://goo.gl/2DgH9d ) reports that friends of the woman later told the deputy about her recent breakup.
