Her mother posted an update to social media on January 17 saying Ms Hoffie had undergone multiple operations but no longer required breathing support and was eating and talking.

"She is sedated but optimistic and has already muttered, 'I’m going to have to deal with this'," Professor Hoffie wrote. "Miraculously, she shows no evidence of brain damage."

In another update, Professor Hoffie, a Griffith University professor emeritus, shared a photo of her daughter taken hours before the accident, wearing a bright pink top.

She wrote that the colour of the top saved Ms Hoffie from being hit by a second train 20 minutes after the first train struck her.

"The bright pink colour of her top is what alerted the engine driver of the second train to the fact that someone was lying across the track," Professor Hoffie wrote.
