Man sits on rail track after losing N35,000

CITIZENS COMPASS– A man who lost N35,000 on Thursday, escaped being crushed to death when he sat absent-mindedly on the rail track at Cappa/Oshodi in Lagos State.

Fate however smiled on him when a moving train halted for him to avoid being crushed to death.

The man was resting on his hands placed on his knees while ignoring the blasting horns of the train.

He looked dishevelled, when asked why he ignored the warnings, said he was on his way to Arena Shopping Complex when he lost N35,000.

He said the shock of the loss numbed him.

“I was on my way to Arena when I realised I had lost N35,000,” he said.

An eyewitness said: “Even I could hear the train horn from a far distance.”

What was most surprising for others eyewitnesses was that it was unusual for a train in motion to stop abruptly.

One eyewitness said: “I don’t want to witness what I did some few years ago in this same place – how a train smashed a man into smithereens right before me.”
