Tube Suicide

Every year people take their own life, suicide is vastly under reported, why are they killing themselves? It’s a loaded question, obviously. Suicide is constantly a terrible tragedy that blows everyone it touches, in one way or another. Even so, few people look the end of their life as an extravagant final act, and insist on making an exposition out of it.

As such, assured popular locations have a reputation of attracting an analytically unreasonable amount of suicides. There are plenty of locations that suicides are done, it is really disappointing hearing about suicides, we can’t do anything especially it is done already. An even authority has difficulties handling about suicides. Let me share you a one location that suicide is done by weekly basis.

London Underground

London Underground is perhaps the most famous public transit system in the world. It is commonly known as The Tube. The Tube has been working since the 19th Century. It covers up an excellent 270 stations with its 11 lines and 402 kilometers (250 miles) of track.

It is also one of the most probably places in the world to see a suicide. As the Underground is readily attainable from almost everywhere in London, its dashing, heavy trains have become famous instruments of self-devastation among the more outrageous city tenants. People jump in front of oncoming trains on a weekly basis, can you imagine that? Its weekly basis, the most famous suicide station is King’s Cross St. Pancras, while the Northern Line takes home the line with utmost jumpers and in 2001-2011 there are 145 deaths.

Tube suicide is casual enough that these disasters have become just another routine frustration for the poor Underground crew. Delays cause by jumpers is called with code names such as Passenger Action or One Under. The water outlet openings many stations tracks angle are casually called suicide hole, because the jumpers who fall in them have a larger chance for survival.

As famous as the Underground system is, it is probably the smallest dignified way to commit suicide in existence. It is notably ineffective and 40% of jumpers die only, and survivors will be owed with a number of faults with passive disturbing names like Obstruction of trains with intent. Fortunate jumpers are not valued any better. Their damage remains will be composed by the disappointed staff and bluffly stuffed in a cleaning cupboard until the government arrives.
