what sad sad state of affairs for the guy and in front of people who knew him as well. They must be traumatised.
Guilt, mental illness, chemical imbalance, demons. does anyone really know?

Desperate act by a desperate person and it must be a terrible thing to witness.

Nothing in the news article that says he threw himself in front of the train or was with anyone. Apologise for reinforcing initial post----poor journalism!!

Often 'news' reports and actual events are miles apart, Fish.

Reported in The Globe ( yes, hours ago) the man was being taken to hospital?? Now, that- I do not understand. Man V Train-not good!! frown

Maybe for legal reasons journalists have to be careful with their wording??

Many of you are speculating about the mans state of mental health?!
How many of you are aware about the cuts to mental health services?
