Man killed after being hit by train in Manila



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.

    Condolence to the family of the guy.

    On the other hand, it would be great if the news writer described what the Police Officer said. “Walang clipper don sa area kasi lagpas na yon ng station,” ano ba ang clipper? At ano relasyon nito sa station? If this is a common knowledge, pardon for the ignorance.

    second fatality i’v read with similar circumstances. perhaps some kind of safety measure have to be imposed?

    • JunPyo123

      Safety measure should come from the people who plan to cross railroad tracks. Ika nga, stop, look, and listen. Hindi porke may train sa bandang kanan, walang tren sa bandang kaliwa. Pwede ito sa probinsiya kasi isang linya lang ng riles ang meron.

    Ano na naman ito? Kasalanan ng Train operator o ng Taong lito? Kawawa na naman ang operator, kulong na naman sa kasalanan ng iba.
