A woman in her 20s, carrying a baby boy, was hit and killed by a train in Funabashi, Chiba Prefecture, on Friday, in what police believe may have been a murder-suicide. The infant, just a few months old, also died.
According to police, the incident occurred on the tracks along the Shinkeisei line between and Shintsudanuma and Maehara stations at around 11:30 a.m. , Fuji TV reported.
The driver of the six-car train said he saw the woman holding her baby ahead on the tracks and applied the emergency brake but couldn’t stop in time.
No one on the train was injured by the impact.© Japan Today
