Someone has to be in a bad emotional situation to throw him/herself under a train. And it just takes a moment. Prob no thought beforehand ...just an impulse. So very sad and traumatic for family.
A neighbour I dont know very well .......met on other business....was emotionally overwhelmed with sadness. His dogs were everything to him and he has lost both,over past 12 months. Quite a young fellow on his own,,partner left him, but clearly in a bad way. I suggested a call to the Samaritans.......something I was part of couple years back. My feeling was he was suicidal and I asked him. popped in over the weekend and he seemed slightly better but today? Who knows?
It may be considered "selfish" to end ones life in a "messy" way but life can be very bad for some people at times.
