I was on the train and it stopped for about 15-20 minutes. I was wondering what was up because it wasn't that close to a station. Plus, there were no trains going by on the tracks adjacent to us.
Eventually the train started up again. I was looking out my window and saw that someone must have commited suicide by putting their head on the line. The body was fine but the head was nowhere in sight.
I whinced and reeled back in a 'what the ****?!' response

I'm kind of unsure if it was some kind of joke being played, but it'd be a pretty elaborate joke to go to the length of making a life-like body and clothing it, then putting it on the tracks.


Tl;dr: Has anybody ever seen a dead body before? How did you react when you saw it?

Kind of a morbid subject, but it was kind of a weird experience.

Was probably a joke. If the train only stopped for 15-20 minutes and no additional vehicles for retrieving the body was called or anything it was either a joke or the people dealing with the situation in the train were heartless bastards, like giraffes.

Could be my lucky day

Wait... wasn't there blood near the tracks? If not; it was not a real person.

A bit. But I was suspiscious because there was less than I thought there'd be. Unless the head was cut in a way that caused the 'stump' to come against the tracks, stopping the blood from coming out as much.

I didn't really see it for that long, but it would be likely that it was a joke.
I just think it's pretty weird to go through all of that trouble just to troll a train track


Also, dead animals do not count. I saw a dead rat yesterday, it was flattened on the road and looked like a small section of fur carpet had been installed on the tarmac

Less than you'd think? What does that mean? 1 litre instead of 2?

Unlikely it was real, a person tends to splatter in such situations. If there was nothing like that, I doubt it was real.

A grown man has 5-6 litres of blood in them, to expect at least half of it on the tracks is not unrealistic, since the train "cut" off major arteries. I think you can deem the blood "not enough" based on just simple physiology.

Probably not real I guess. I don't really understand why someone would pull a joke like that then

The only other times I saw a dead body were at a funeral (open casket) and in Brazil where there was a car accident.

Was the head cleanly cut off?

Ye.

I'm starting to believe it was a fake, which is reassuring in some ways and disconcerting in others.

Surely, after they had finished putting the clothes on the fake body they would have thought 'Wow, you know, this is kind of messed up.'

Yeah, even when decapitation was all the rage as capital punishment, the executioner couldn't cut the doomed's head cleanly off, and he had a blade!
Train weels are awfully blunt, they are more crushing than severing, and I'll leave the imagening to the rest of you. Human bones has a higher durability than both copper and steel, but if you out a penny on the tracks, does it get cleft?

Very disturbing indeed, they could have seriously frightened someone.

Were there no police/ambulances there?

Why would you think it was real if there were no emergency services around?

May have been recent?
I'll just say that my mind was in shock

But seriously, it's kind of a weird prank. I don't really know what kind of satisfaction someone could get from something like that.

Being a medical student I dissect cadavers every week and I've seen a post mortem examination. After the first week it's not really an issue being around so many bodies, you get used to it.

Funeral wise yes alot. On the open street though only twice.

Once someone had been shot in the chest and stomach at a night club (didnt witness just saw aftermath) and i saw someone killed in a car crash (actually witnessed the crash) at a bad intersection near my favorite "hood" store. Both times it got to me a little.

It was in the countryside. Basically surrounded by fields.

They stopped any trains from going down that track, so maybe they were treating it as something serious.

I've seen two.

One was when my grandmother passed away but that wasn't horrible or disturbing or anything as it was fairly peaceful doped up on morphine.

The second was when I went rowing with my girlfriend in a double. The river runs right next to this massive park where the Guy Fawkes celebrations had been the night before. As we were rowing along my blade hit something in the water. I didn't see it but my girlfriend who was bow did. She screamed and panicked and shit. Twas crazy. Had to call the emergency services and stuff whilst comforting her because she was in a state (drowned bodies look rough). That was out first proper date as I had asked her out properly during the fireworks the night before

How did the person die?
Were they drunk and just ended up drowning?

That must've been pretty weird for your GF. It sounds like that scene from Jaws where they're investigating a sunken boat and the corpse just comes out of nowhere from the darkness of the hull.

If you've watched Jaws, you'll know what I mean.

I've never personally seen anything gory like what you mentioned. Just some open casket type stuff that wasn't too bad.

Also, when I read that the train stopped for 15 to 20 minutes I couldn't help but think of this...

Policeman said that me going into that house to pet that cat is “breaking and entering”. It’s a free country and if I see a cat I will pet it.

Ive seen 3. My friend, grandmother and...
A guy in calgary that was driving down the highway on his crotch rocket into traffic.
He hit a black escalade head on. (did not witness this)
He had been thrown into the windshield and hit the top where it meets the roof.
His lower body, from about belly down was right next to the bloody escalade.
His upper body was a good 50 meters down the road bloodied and smashed something fierce.
I got a good view as traffic was really slow. Didn't really phase me that much, but I feel so bad for the driver of the suv.

Yeah that's what I'd assume. Probably got off his face, went to pee and fell in or something along those lines. Such a tragic and pointless death, not to mention completely avoidable. Yeah she wasn't her normal self for a week or two after.
