Natalya Garkovich, 43, was pulled for 110 meters (360ft) alongside the track, and then inside the tunnel for another 25 meters, after her bag got trapped in the train door when she attempted to board the metro in Termini station, central Rome, on Wednesday.

The train’s door sensors failed to recognise the blockage and emergency levers pulled by passengers inside the train failed to raise the alarm, according to local reports.
