A 68-year-old man died yesterday at the Sijhih (汐止) train station after reportedly crossing the warning line on the platform and getting hit by a northbound train to Keelung. The Taiwan Railway Administration (TRA) said yesterday that Chen Mao-mo (陳茂模) was sent to the hospital immediately after he was hit, but died approximately a half hour later. The TRA said that personnel on the platform normally blow the whistle to alert passengers about an oncoming train, but by the time they noticed Chen's motion it was too late to warn him. A report by Formosa Television said Chen bounced off the train and hit and injured another passenger. TRA said it will do everything it can to assist Chen's family after the accident.
