"She was a woman with a good heart and soul. She was a really beautiful person.

"She would always help you and listen to you - nothing was too much trouble.

"She was helpful, kind, loving and considerate. You couldn't say a bad word about her."

While this person ended her torment by train, lets also spare a thought for the train driver and the emergency services.

Yes. But what other option was there?

While I wish peace on the the lady in question, the option being as you questioned is, that she could have spared a thought (as she was known to do apparently) for the people mentioned in the above post and those that were witness to the incident taking the train that morning.and not deciding to end her life there of all places.
I know this sounds insensitive and is going to receive a thumbs down, but why leave others with the traumatisation for months if not years, of witnessing these kind of incidents? If it was because it was a cry for help, it is still an unfair thing to do, whichever way you look at it.

Why do these articles always say "hit by train" ? This implies that it is the train drivers fault when in fact the women chose to jump. Whatever the reasons for someone to take their own life there are plenty of other ways to do it rather than making a public specticle of it to be witnessed by many. This has to be the most inconsiderate way of taking ones life with little or no thought for others. Surely a bottle of sleeping pills is a better way to go?
