It seems that about once a week, if not at least a couple of times a month, someone “places himself on the tracks” and gets hit by train. Does this happen on a regular basis in other subways? I don’t remember hearing of it when I was in Taipei or Paris, but I hear of it all the time in DC.
I know, of course, that it happens. The walls that they have in Taipei and Tokyo that block the tracks until the train arrives are there, as I understand, because people did this kind of thing.
