I once got so drunk I accidentally walked into a train, as it was moving. I remember being knocked over and rolling around near the wheels as they went by. It's my number 1 "holy fark you're an idiot" memory. Nowadays when I get that drunk I can't remember it. I wish I could forget that one. Alas my youthful brain was great at remembering bad stuff.

The 15-year-old tried to jump onto the tracks at the 53rd St. R station in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, but a mistiming of her leap instead found her slamming into the train.

Death by train is pretty much one of the surest ways to pull it off, and if you manage to fail at that, well... enough said.

And this is why we need to increase funding to education. So in the future kids can properly calculate when to jump to achieve their goals.

I knew a guy who tried to kill himself by ODing on LSD.  When that didn't work, he jumped off of a trestle into the path of a train.  It hit him and ran over him, severing both arms and a leg.  He lived.

It is a drag when you get so low that you want to terminate your life.

You are not the first to feel like it is all over, trust me, you can get past it with help.

This hit close to home. I live little over a mile from this subway station and ride the R train daily.

She's very fortunate if she didn't suffer brain damage. I guess this day, labeled the most depressing day of the year is living up to its billing for this poor girl.

One of the few times I can't snark on Fark. She's a 15 years old and sometimes things seem worse than they are or they are actually that bad. I hope she pulls through then gets the support she needs. Sad to think that someone so young sees no other solution to their problems except for suicide.

I cringe, imagining this poor young lady returning to a school where she is relentlessly bullied and the school does nothing about it, being taunted.. "I'd tell you to go kill yourself, but you can't even get that right!"

No idea if bullying was any part of her reason, of course, but ugh.

I meant that it hit close to home both literally and figuratively. I live very close to this station and ride the R train daily. I also went through a severe suicidal depression a couple of years ago and compteplated jumping unto those same subway tracks.Got the help I needed and have been stable for a while. It does get better guys, although I didn't think so a couple of years ago.

I was thinking the same thing. A gesture/cry out for help. Like taking a "small" overdose of Ambien. Still very dangerous with a great risk of death or brain damage. A 15 year old is not thinking rationally when she's in that state.

I've never been suicidal myself, but have been close to a few people who were. It's a terrifying feeling when you are attached someone who can't see the good things in life and who even lacks any hope for the future. When it's a young kid, it's especially dreadful. My heart goes out to this girl; I hope she'll be okay.

You really think people who are suicidal are thinking clearly? And what is the inconvenience, that someone's train is delayed? Some attitude you have. I know I shouldn't be surprised about the lack of empathy on the internet, but still this is a kid who wanted to end her life. For some reason I couldn't care less about commuters who were inconvenienced.

Ugh. I read an absolutely farking horrible account of a guy who was pushed onto the subway tracks and a train hit him. He didn't die immediately, but it did corkscrew his body in such a way that it was not a survivable injury. The pressure of being all wedged under was the only thing keeping him from bleeding out right there. When they jacked up the train to pull him out, he would die, and all the first responders knew it.

And he was conscious. And he knew it too.

The idea of instant death I can deal with. But that...

Nightmare stuff, that.

No, I saw someone try to jump and hit the side of the train.

In my city, we have above ground commuter trains. When I was a kid, I also saw someone get his face sliced open by a train's side view mirror. Stay back from the yellow line, mofos.

Lastly, I saw a cop car get smashed by the train during an over eager stop-and-frisk. That was hilarious.

Train suicide is not quick or pleasant.

You might get popped like a balloon in the guts, sure, but even then you will get cheesegrated along the rails as the train's conductor continues applying the brakes. You're then tossed like garbage to lay among the waste water and rat turds as you bleed out from a million tears and compound fractures contemplating what a mistake it all was. You don't die quickly.

This makes no sense. Do you mean "newspaper"? I don't understand why she would need one for a suicide note. I doubt a 15-year-old girl would get her news from print, or why that would be more upsetting than the electronic mediums a teen is more likely to use.

Ugh. I read an absolutely farking horrible account of a guy who was pushed onto the subway tracks and a train hit him. He didn't die immediately, but it did corkscrew his body in such a way that it was not a survivable injury. The pressure of being all wedged under was the only thing keeping him from bleeding out right there. When they jacked up the train to pull him out, he would die, and all the first responders knew it.

And he was conscious. And he knew it too.

The idea of instant death I can deal with. But that...

Nightmare stuff, that.


A few years back there was a local story of a guy trapped between his stalled vehicle, and another car that hit him crushing him almost flat. He was conscious. They delayed peeling apart the wreckage and brought his wife and son to the scene to say their goodbyes. A responder told the paper they spent a half hour together crying, talking, and laughing before he told them he was too uncomfortable to go on. He then thanked everyone and asked if they could hurry up and get this over with.

The NJ Transit train I used to ride was involved in a "Trespasser Incident" a few years ago. The crew were all pretty upset for several days, especially the guy driving the train. It's a pretty farked up thing to do, you're basically forcing someone else to kill you without their consent.

I keep imagining what the passenger sitting by that particular window was thinking when she smashed into the side of the train. It had to have been a split second event. I guess he/she was just sitting there reading the paper or what not and hears a wham, then for a second sees a body bounce off side as train keeps rolling. What do you do? Is it like "Hey guys, did you guys see that?"

This was a takeoff on the Homicide: Life on the Street episode "Subway."  It was based upon an actual incident.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subway_(Homicide:_Life_on_the_Street)

Fun Fact: ~~In an interview, Vince Gilligan admitted that he borrowed liberally from this episode to create the X-Files episode "Drive", which would in turn lead to his creating the critically acclaimed series Breaking Bad.

And find a way to eliminate height. That would help too.


The light-rail/tram systems that are being installed now generally have a 6" to 10" stepup, and the wheels are totally enclosed.  They just use small curbs at the stations for people with strollers, wheelchairs, etc.  But those systems are slow enough that even stepping directly in front of one is just going to result in a full-body bruise, and maybe a concussion when you hit the ground.  There's no ground clearance to sucked under, etc.  Totally different thing from 60 mph heavy-rail subways.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strasbourg_tramway

I rode this on vacation about 6 years ago.  Quite nice.  More comfortable, easier to board, and quieter than a bus.  Part of the success, however, is turning the old downtown of Strasbourg into a virtually pedestrian-only zone.  Personal vehicles are restricted to small side streets & alleys, and the main routes are just for trams, emergency vehicles, and some service vehicles (mostly delivery, some plumber/electrician/building repair stuff).

4 Euros per ride may seem expensive, but its a hell of lot cheaper than a taxi. And oodles cheaper than renting a car and paying to park it. Just stay in a hotel a block or two from a tramline, and take the tram to tourist attractions & restaurants.

To use them in a more sprawled-out geography like most of the US, you need to do higher-speed dedicated rights of way, and be very smart about park-and-ride, shuttles to shopping & office parks, feeder bus lines, etc.

They can (and do) implement that on newer lines because of standardized platforms and door widths and the like. The old lines though, can't really fix it now.

The crew were all pretty upset for several days, especially the guy driving the train. It's a pretty farked up thing to do, you're basically forcing someone else to kill you without their consent.


The CBC radio show "Q" had a special about this, train drivers in Toronto who had killed people this way and how much it disturbed them.  Such suicides are fairly common in Japan (and as others mentioned, they get announced so you know when they've happened) but apparently they're pretty common everywhere with trains.
