    This tweet has a video of the event. You can see the fireworks and then the train plows through towards the end. People only start reacting to it about two or three seconds before it passes through. Not that it's the train's fault that people were standing on the tracks.

  11. In American Culture:
    You should flush your waste in the toilet after you stand, or your butt might get wet with poop water

    In Indian Culture
    You should stand when the train comes to flush away your poop, or you'll be fleshed by the train.

  12. I can see they aren't teaching Don't Stand on the Tracks 101 in school these days. I like how some people are appealing to common sense and sure enough some Indian is there saying it was a holiday and a large crowd had come to see it. Yeah, my favorite Christmas tradition is standing in the freeway caroling.

    Condolences to the families regardless.

    Considering all the things in india that will kill you, like highly unsanitary conditions, not showing bob and vageen, death by train seems like a mercy kill tbh.

  17. Fireworks. It isn’t audible in the video until it’s already on them. Either the people planning the event didn’t check the train schedules or a train was running when it wasn’t supposed to. Given how terrible their railway system’s track record reportedly is I’m not sure which. I’m not ready to chalk this up to victim stupidity yet, this seems more like an administrative fuckup.
