Another case that would have been prevented by PEDs. However, it was hard
to tell from the contradictory witness accounts just how bad his injuries
were.

One question that will come up will be whether he was standing behind the yellow line. And while I don't want to play down some of the "witness testimony", I very much doubt that he would be "fighting for his life" if he had been "decapitated".

At least one of the other witnesses said that his head was in one place,
but bloody. Another one described him as "topless" -- does that just mean
the paramedics pulled off his clothes to treat him?

He was bending over, it's reported. So everything from his shoulders
down could have been behind the yellow line, but his head still exposed.

"decapitated".


Indeed.

One piece, I read. Which could be bouncing down the platform.

Also many reports about the chap being "just meters away" [from
bystanders]. No mention of whether they were gas or electricity meters.

I don't agree that having paedophiles wandering around the platform assists passenger safety.

BTP have just confirmed the man has died from his injuries. Awful.

Condolences to him and his family.

I note that there was a very significant delay between him dying and the
death being announced (over a week). I presume there's nothing more
behind that than BTP and others unfortunately being unable to contact
his family or some such?
