Weird guy but at least he didn't stab anybody else, and he is not dying either.

More like a suicidal "gesture" (cry for help) than a real attempt. Why go into a busy location and do it in front of witnesses? Because there's a very good chance that you'll be saved.

Woah, I would have passed through that station today, if I hadn't gotten off at Kagohara.

The act may be self-infliction without lethal intent. The important thing to realize is that a potential suicide victim sees very little hope of resolving his problems while a friend may be able to point out an obvious solution.
