One of the most freakiest of accidents i have ever witnessed in my life… when a stupid cyclist gets stuck at the level crossing and then leaves his cycle only to be crushed by the raging Mahakaushal Express..!!
The horror didn’t end here as the crushed cycle gets stuck under the wheels of the WAP-4 locomotive and in a hurry the LP applies the emergency brakes to ensure that the train comes to a halt in time else it would have lead to a catastrophe…!! 10/10 to awareness and alertness of the loco pilots who saved the lives of thousands that evening.
After a grueling 30 minutes the charred cycle was finally remove and further it took another 20 more minutes for the Loco Pilot and the assistant loco pilot to get the reassurance that they were good to go..!! After being stranded for over 50 minutes , The 12190 Mahakoshal Express finally resumed it’s journey to Jabalpur..!!
This delay resulted in a huge pile up of the trains which were at it’s back.. trains like Paschim Express, Madhya Pradesh Sampark Kranti, Telengana express along with few freights were halted in between Hodal-Chhata..!!
All thanks to the careless attitude of the guy who couldn’t even wait for few seconds and in a moment of jiffy not only risked his own life but also the life of thousands. A Lesson to be learned… Never ever cross a level crossing whenever a train is approaching or in sight… just for a sake of few seconds dont risk the life of yourself and others..!!
