A MUM has told of the horrific moment she lost her legs - after lying in front of a train in an attempt to take her own life. Pretty Helen Galsworthy was just 18 years old when she walked on to the tracks close to her home in Eastleigh, Hampshire. Suffering from depression and addicted to cocaine, she wanted to end her life. But she moved just as the train approached - taking off both legs below the knee.  Incredibly, Helen was conscious for just long enough to see her detached legs lying on the track. Thankfully, a passing dog walker found her and she was rushed to hospital. Now, seven years later, 25-year-old Helen says she can finally talk about the ordeal and coming to terms with being an amputee. And she is moving on with her life after having a little boy, Thomas.
