I think it should be initiated in quite a few other service industries.

Posted in: Body of suicide jumper hurled by train into woman on platform See in context

Brian Wheway, The train drivers used to have three months off work and support for PTS. Years ago,I think its changed now but if a person jumped and caused a delay either way a fine was imposed of about 2/3 million yen. The individual who jumped if did not have the funds then his immediate family were required to pay.

This story is terribly sad for everyone involved.My deepest condolences for all those effected.

It seems that the woman in a desperate need for attention resorted to this level. Pleased to hear there wasn't any fatalities. I hope the woman receives the attention and help she obviously needs.

This is a heart rendering story and my deepest condolences to the young lady's family. What I'm appalled at not reading or even mentioning in this article is the reporters lazyness YOU'RE A PRAT! Did you not bother to mention that this company although saddened by this incident perhaps more so because it actually got bloody reported, was that this company ALSO AT THE SAME TIME COLLETED A HEFTY LIFE INSURANCE PAYOUT!

I don't particularly care if the truth can be verified or not. I thought it was a nice story, and far more desirable than to read of some psychotic episode involving a married couple. May they both RIP

Welcome Mr. Haigh,

Good luck to the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. All we need now is to get rid of some the idiots at the British Chamber of Commerce and some real change and progress might be on the horizon
