A male passenger was found dead after he jumped onto the Beijing Metro Line 1 railway this morning just as a train was approaching.
According to witness accounts on Sina, passengers on the train were told not to get off when it arrived at the Wukesong Station around 7:12 a.m. today. Several searchers went down onto the tracks with a stretcher and searched for about 10 minutes but couldn’t find anything. After the train jolted, they climbed on the platform carrying the corpse on a stretcher.
Surveillance footage showing the man leaping onto the tracks has been uploaded to Weibo. Several web users have alleged that the man was a police officer facing persecution for a reporting a corrupt official who’d been taking bribes.
