Suicide averted!

When I lived in Shanghai, my closest subway station was Songhong Road (Line 2). This Friday morning, a man attempted to commit suicide by laying himself on the subway track. Quickthinking passengers informed metro staff who then activated the emergency brake. Everyone was on tenterhooks as they watched the train coming in, but heaved a sigh of relief as it came to a complete halt just before the man. Crisis averted.

Eyewitness @vivianlww who uploaded this picture to her Sina Weibo account wondered, “What sort of world are we coming to with so many people having the courage to commit suicide but not the courage to live?”
