How sad, she must have felt that she had nobody to turn to. Is that in UK Barry? I have a feeling it may not be.

my son is a train driver - never happened to him yet but some drivers never return to work after such an incident - I have every sympathy with the victim and family, must have been in a dreadful state to do such a thing - just a shame to involve another person

I can't think.

About 8.30 this morning near Purley / Croydon a woman threw herself and a child in front of a train. They were both killed.

My goodness, what troubles were going through her mind to drag an innocent child to die in such an awful manner? It doesn't bear thinking about!

My sincere sympathies to the family - and also to the poor train driver; how he feels after this awful event I cannot begin to imagine. He'll never be the same person.

There are always far reaching repercussions in such tragic circumstances.
