Two passengers on a Seibu Shinjuku line train were hurt after a large stone flew through the window on Thursday afternoon, police said. The incident happened at around 4:25 p.m. as the train passed through Tokorozawa in Saitama Prefecture.
According to police, two women passengers, aged 67 and 51, were injured by flying glass as the fist-sized stone smashed through the seventh train car window of the eight-car train. The two women received minor cuts to their faces and hands.
The stone, which weighed around a kilogram, was different from the stones and gravel beside the tracks, leading police to believe that it was deliberately thrown from an area outside the train tracks.© Compiled from news reports
