A man in his 60s jumped from the platform onto the tracks of the Ginza subway line at Ueno station Sunday, just as a train bound for Asakusa entered the station.
According to Tokyo Metro authorities, he was immediately pulled back up onto the platform by other commuters. He was bleeding severely from his head and right leg, but the injuries are not life-threatening, police said.
The incident occurred at around 12:45 Sunday afternoon. Service on the Ginza line was suspended for 20 minutes, affecting an estimated 5,500 people.© News reports
