In a lot of cases it's people trying to outrun the train, crossing the tracks to change platforms and such.

I saw a guy try to avoid a fight on a platform, he walked away jumped down onto the tracks to cross to the next platform. A train was approaching, saw him, beeped, the guy did hear it and looked toward the train.

The guy could've just stood there to let the train pass but he thought he'd chance it and ran across to the tracks to the platform which was around chest height.

He grabbed the platform and jumped up to get on it, he didn't have enough time to get a leg onto the platform before the train collected him.

Yes, I did have to go to court to appear as witness. The guy picking the fight (17 yr old) did 3 years for manslaughter.

This individual pit-bull did a good thing therefore pit-bulls are inherently good and every pet lover should strongly consider getting one.


Patiently waiting for the obsessed anti-Pit-Bull fanatics among us to post up in this thread and uniformly apply their "logic."

Unfortunately however, it is impossible to correctly identify a pitbull, as they appear so similar to other breeds. Chances are, this was not a pit at all- it was likely a Dachshund. Or a Dalmatian.
