22-year-old Woman Dies after Falling off Mumbai Local Train
Charmi Prasad, a resident of Bhopar in Dombivali, fell down from a CSMT-bound fast train and was rushed to a hospital in Shastri Nagar after people saw her lying injured on the tracks.
Thane: A 22-year-old woman on Monday fell from a suburban train between Dombivali and Kopar stations in Maharashtra's Thane district and died after being rushed to a nearby hospital with severe injuries, police said.
The incident happened between kilometres 47/17 and 47/15 on Central Railway's suburban network in the morning, said Inspector Satish Pawar of Dombivali railway police.
"Charmi Prasad, a resident of Bhopar in Dombivali, fell down from a CSMT-bound fast train around 9:30am and was rushed to a hospital in Shastri Nagar after people saw her lying injured on the tracks. She succumbed to severe injuries. We have registered an accidental death case," Pawar added.
Pawar said the woman was travelling to Ghatkopar where she works in a private firm. Local railway police officials said the train must have been crowded as the incident happened during morning rush hour.
At least eight-10 people lose their lives daily on the Mumbai suburban network, among the densest in the world.
While many are killed while crossing tracks, a sizable number is of those who fall off crowded trains. A recent Right to Information reply revealed nearly 27,000 people have died in suburban train mishaps between January 2010 and September this year.
Incidentally, Central Railway, which runs 1,774 services daily, on Saturday revised its timetable, changing the timing of 42 local trains, and extending a few to Parel
terminus near Dadar.
