Today i woke up at around 7 am. Got ready to go to School. Left at around 7:30 and luckily the train got to the station fast. So i made it to school on time.But then there they were doing the metal detector scans, and i had my ipod and cellphone with me, and if i went in they would have taken it away.So im like meh, and i came back home.

And heres the thing. the train was on the elevated tracks. Which i have to say must only be like 2 stories high. There is a big train hub where most trains start their route. I was waiting for the train there. When it finally came it started moving out the station slowly. Thats when looking out the window i saw a man. A short skinny man, wearing a white t shirt and blue jeans,just standing there. He was right on the edge of the station. Beyond where you wait for the train. He was past the fence that says do not trespass. He was just there.. right next to a tiny fence that could have only been 1 foot high. That was the only thing between him and nothing. He looked so calm and serene, like if he was happy, or at least not freaked out about it. When i saw this i kept looking thinking..wtf i think hes gonna jump . But since i was on the train and it was moving i could'nt really stay and see.. i got home and i just kept thinking..was that guy really gonna kill himself. Or was he doing something there..and i just interpreted it as if he was gonna jump :\

tl;dr : I think i saw a guy about to jump off and kill himself.

Hmm, weird. Just watch the news and check the papers for the next couple of days. One morning while driving on the highway I noticed a bunch of emergency vehicles all around the upcoming overpass, both on it and below it. When I got closer I noticed it was because there was a guy who hung himself from the overpass and they were trying to get the body down. Sure enough in the paper a couple days later there was a little article about it. Just keep your eyes open, if anything did happen you can probably find it.

Why didn't you tell someone to stop him, or atleast see what he was doing?

I couldnt. I was already on the train, and it was moving. I was looking out the window. and no one on the station could have seen him because he was all the way to the edge. Not visible anymore by the people waiting for the train.

Metal detectors? At your school?


They've got that in america. In case students try to bring in metal to school.

Yea, I know, but you could have told someone on the train, who would have told the driver(?), who could have told the station, who could have told security, who could have checked it out.

Meh

Theres only two people who could have possibly talked back to the station. and those are the drivers, and there are only two on each train. At each edge. and i was right in the middle of the train. So there was no way we could have told any of them in time if he did indeed jumped off.
EDIT: oh and about the metal detectors, its once a month, they bring them in. Mostly tho its because the board of Education here doesn't allow cell phones and such, so you aren't supposed to bring them to school. So when they do the scans, they confiscate all these things and don't give them back to you till like 3 months later.

Yeeeah The train is long, and i would have to walk all the way to the other edge. and who knows maybe i wasnt even gonna be able to, since they lock the doors so that no one can go from wagon to wagon while the train is in motion.

I saw a guy in a wheelchair roll himself out into the busiest road around here.

He trying to get in front of a bus that was going 55mph.

The bus swerved (well, a bus can't swerve that well but it tried) and narrowly missed the man.

After that the dude just rolled onto the sidewalk and just sat there.

I doubt he was just trying to cross the road because he crossed when traffic was heavy and didn't wait for a red light.

My mom was like, "OMG WTF NO STOP DON'T LOOK" and covered my eyes (I was 14 at the time).

Yeah, i doubt he was just trying to cross the street.So what happened to the bus? did it crash into anything ?Or kept going after it passed the guy in the wheel chair?

i thought after some of the school shootings that schools had to allow you to carry a cell phone, but that it just had to be turned off. That's how it is in Illinois anyway.

I don't really know. When i was in junior high a few years ago, we could carry cellphones. but yeah, we just couldn't be using them during class and all that. But In this school it isn't like that. I think its the whole city tho, because the Board of Education here in NY, said no electronics were allowed into school or something along those lines. So now they confiscate them.

Yeah man sounds pretty intense. I remember i have seen someone riding a bike get hit my a car. It was in a really busy street. The cars all go upwards or 40 MPH and the car should have stopped but it couldnt totally stop in time. and it hit some guy on a bike. He flew a few feet away. I dont know what happened afterwards. The driver was an old man , so maybe he couldnt really see the bike rider.
