Today the rail announcer said that the central line had severe delays and Mile End station was closed because of "a person under a train". I didn't hear anyone mutter "oh dear" or "how sad". Did anyone think "was it an accident or suicide"? Did anyone say a short prayer? Did anyone think of the family or friends, the train driver in torment and shock, or the people that witnessed the "passenger incident"?
