Pedestrian wearing earphones hit by train

116

A 23-year-old man suffered injuries after being hit by a locomotive in Mbayani Blantyre on Saturday.

The victim Gibson Banda who is a casual worker at Opt-Chem in Blantyre, was on Saturday at around 4AM walking along the railway while wearing earphones.

As the Central East Africa Railway locomotive was coming towards him, he couldn’t hear it. The operator of the locomotive tried to warn the victim but he couldn’t hear until he was hit.

He sustained deep cuts in the head and was rushed to Mwaiwathu Private Hospital where he has been admitted.

Police have since advised members of the public to exercise extra caution when walking on the roads or railways to avoid some accidents which are avoidable.

  3. People don’t listen. One day I saw a bus driver with earphones. We goofed for along time for him to give us way as he was carelessly driving but he couldn’t hear

  4. This should serve as a lesson to all careless people! it’s unbelievable you see quite a good number of pedestrians with earphones listening to music or radio, at times you see educated fools jogging along the road listening to songs on earphones instead of enduring and persevering exercise regime ,it even get worse seeing some idiot driving a vehicle all Windows raised and listening to songs through earphones. surely none in the three instances will hear a horn or any sound warning impending danger that’s a recipe to avoidable accidents . Please do not listen to songs or radio through earphones when using the road at all times!!
