nobody considers the poor train driver when these things happen. This stupid man who tried to commit suicide obviously needs help but so does the train driver.

I have 2 train drivers in my family, and this unfortunate event has happened to both of them. Believe me, the drivers are very well counselled by their Company, and time off, as and when they are fit, mentally and physically ready to return to work. The poor man involved must of been at the end of his tether. Nobody knows how they feel until you are in their shoes.

"This stupid man"
"Tried to commit suicide"
"Needs help"

Strong allegations and assumptions. Perhaps we need to wait for the police report of what actually happened before reaching such negative and potentially upsetting & damaging comments.

Tragic accident whichever way you look at it with dreadful, long term consequences for both the drivers & harmed mans family and friends.

As 216sam says, The RMT fully support train drivers in cases like this, but when it happens, it must be horrific for the driver. Mustang1974 - Spot on.

It didn't say in the report that the train stopped or if the driver or the Guard witnessed the incident. The Guy could have been unsteady on his feet(for many reasons) and was caught in the passing draft from an express train. Like a previous commentator stated, lets wait for further information and hope he recovers from his horrific ordeal.
