Train bog death probed by cops


Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

RAIL cops are in­ves­ti­gat­ing af­ter a train pas­sen­ger died on the bog.

The man in his 40s was found slumped on a toi­let seat when the train pulled into a sta­tion.

Fire­fight­ers had to break into the locked train toi­let to free the man yes­ter­day.

It is be­lieved the man may have had a heart at­tack and died while locked in.

The alarm was raised when an­other trav­eller tried to use the toi­let on the Great Bed­wyn to Read­ing train as it pulled into the sta­tion at New­bury, Berks.

The fire­fight­ers smashed the toi­let win­dow of the small cu­bi­cle and un­locked the door from the inside to res­cue the man.

He was then treated by await­ing am­bu­lance staff but de­clared dead at the scene.
