Man killed after being hit by train in Manila

11:08 AM November 28, 2012

MANILA, Philippines–A  man was killed after he was hit by Philippine National Railways train in Manila early Wednesday, police said.

Senior Police Officer 1 Ruben Mamuad of Manila Police District station 10 said Michael Antonio, 21, a security guard, was hit by a PNR train along Beata street in Pandacan, Manila around 8:20 a.m.

Initial investigation revealed Antio was on his way to buy some food when he crossed the railway, but stopped upon seeing a train coming from the southbound direction.


He failed to see, however, that another train was coming from the northbound lane where he was standing, and so he was hit.

“Walang clipper don sa area kasi lagpas na yon ng station,” Mamuad explained.
