That reminds me of a guy I heard about a few years back. He was in the Navy and was driving down a highway while on liberty. A car was pulled over on the side of the road where a man and a woman were having a heated argument. The woman pushed the guy, presumably not intending to push him into the road, but into the road he went. The guy driving hits the other guy going 70 mph. That apparently f***ed him up pretty bad and he ended up getting a medical discharge so he wouldn't lose his s*** while operating a submarine with 150 lives in his hands. Not suicide, but same idea.

Damn, feeling bad enough to snuff it & then failing to do so when they actually do attempt it? That's enough to give somebody a complex on top of a complex.

Not to start a debate, but maybe there's room in the world for a service to help them snuff it:

Ok this is just getting stupid. I'm not even complaining that it took me an extra half hour to get home last night. I just dont understand how a person can get themselves in a situation in which they are falling off a train. Also, I am relatively certain that there are NYPD patrolling the 125th st. station in a booth. What makes getting into a fight on the platform seem like a wise thing to do??

Sounds to me like they need to put a toilet on the train, oh wait the train travels thru a toilet, never mind.

Its always adorable when people in Chicago disparage New York. Its like watching a small child with a cardboard sword pretend to slay a dragon.

I would take NY over the second class city any day.

Besides I wasn't the one trying to defecate between two train cars and I lost my balance and killed myself. My point if there had been a toilet on the train, he wouldn't have fell.

I hope the guy wore clean underwear that day.

Seriously though... its not like getting hit by a car. Its pretty difficult to get hit by a train. Why does it happen so often?!

Put down the smart phone, take off/out the ear phones, reconnect with the world.

Is it all that often? An article I read said 55 people died from being struck by subway train in NYC. How many people ride them and or are exposed to them in one year time?

You're right, its a miniscule number percentagewise, but 55 is still an awful high number when you realize that a train cant skid or veer or lose control of its steering and get you. You have to actually fall or jump several feet onto a rather wide track.
