While waiting for the train this morning, one dude just fainted (from the heat perhaps.. it was a scorching morning) and fell head first onto the train tracks. I think everyone gasped and once they realized that he wasn’t getting up, a whole group of guys (5-7 men? I didn’t count) jumped onto the track and put him back on the platform.
Good thing the train was still quite a distance away when the man fell down. The guy woke up a short while later, got up and looked clueless, as if he had no idea he fell. Awhile later some station staff came and took him away. They ‘unpaused’ the train, and I got onto it. Shocking and depressing shit first thing in the morning. The whole journey I kept thinking about ‘what if he died?’. The way his head hit the track, I was surprised he even survived it.
I was late for work again.
As I was discussing with Jacinth earlier (omg I name dropped you!) I learnt something new:
Despite all those signs around the train tracks- they will not electrocute you if you go on the tracks! Weird huh!? We’ve been brought up all our lives (well at least I know I was) to believe that going on a track would kill you. Either way, electrocuting or not, it’s not a wise idea to go on train tracks :p
I deserve a bad citizen award.
Instead of rushing over to help the man, I just stood there and watched the other people do it. I do feel guilty about it. Hopefully next time I’ll do something instead of just watching. Oh wait.. let’s just hope there’s no next time. I think seeing one man fall head first onto the track is enough for a life time.
I wonder if any other morning Setiawangsa LRT users read this blog. haha
