A subway rolled over a man after he fell onto the subway tracks in Union Square Saturday, but the man left the scene relatively unscathed.

The aftermath of the incident was caught on tape and posted on YouTube.

According to police, the 55-year-old fell on the R line tracks at around 11:30 a.m. Saturday.

With the train headed his way, officials say the man crawled into the trenches between the tracks and laid belly down.

The train rolled over him, and he only suffered minor injures.

The man was taken to Bellevue Hospital for treatment.
