The woman can be seen boarding the train: The woman initially boarded the train - but changed her mind seconds later© BBC The woman initially boarded the train - but changed her mind seconds later The CCTV footage shows Ms Garkovich boarding the train at Termini station, before changing her mind at the last minute.

As she backs out of the train, her bag appears to become stuck - and despite the efforts of people on the platform, she cannot be freed.

Local news outlets report that passengers on board the train pulled a number of emergency levers, but were unsuccessful. It is believed Ms Garkovich was not pulled into the tunnel.

The first Mr Tonelli knew of the accident was when he pulled into the next station, according to reports.

The CCTV footage shows that Mr Tonelli was eating while the train was in the platform.

But Carlo Rienzi, president of consumer rights group Codacons, said the failure of both the door and emergency levers meant Mr Tonelli could not be fully to blame.

"The emergency systems on board must function properly," he said in a statement, "Therefore we consider it outrageous and offensive to say the train driver is entirely responsible, when you should thoroughly investigate the Rome subway security systems and their proper operation."

Meanwhile, Stefano Bottoni, national secretary of trade union Sul, said extra measures were needed to avoid a repeat of the accident.

"If the trains were equipped with cameras in the cockpit it might have been different," he told news agency Ansa.
