A CCTV camera captured an alleged suicide attempt by a 21-year-old woman (name withheld) who jumped in front of a speeding train in Delhi, India, in June, reported the Hindustan Times.
The incident occurred on a deserted platform on Sunday in the Delhi metro. According to metro officials it would be impossible to survive such an event unless there was ditch or depression on the tracks.
The woman, who lived in a slum, was handed over to her father after the station manager reasoned with her.
