I read the news today, oh boy...

I thought it'd be worth having a thread to post and discuss the less significant news items from around the world, rather than new topics popping up every couple of days and then dying out in a matter of hours.

 

So that's what this is.

 

I'll start off with the astonishing story which is on Sky News right now:

 

Baby in pram gets twatted by train. And survives.

What turned my stomach was the sheer desperation of her slipping and she reaches out to grab the pram and then the understandable reacton when the train hits. I honestly couldn't comprehend what must have gone through her mind as she saw what she believed to be her child's death.

 

Someone up there was looking out for that kid.

 

When he grows up, that boy will be the cock of the school in first year senoirs."Fuck off, I can take a train".

Wow.

 

The timing was horrifying, but you also have to feel a bit relieved, not just because of the child's extremely unlikely survival but also because if she had been given even two or three more seconds to react she'd have been on the track trying to save the baby and then been hit by the train herself. Scary video to watch but also a very nice story due to the near-miraculous aftermath. :)
