Queen's Park Subway...

Does anyone know what happened this morning?

I was stuck in the delay and have been listening for something on it all day and haven't heard a thing. One of my co-workers who went through the station once the delay was cleared said there were still a ton of cops hanging around.

Curious mind needs satiating!

if the subway was closed and they won't tell you what hte delay is it's because someone jumped. THey never talk about that shit on t.v. or radio because it encourages more people to jump.(or push people)

Ya, I figured it was a jumper and from what I understand they don't always publish this sort of thing, so I was wondering if anyone was actually there when it happened.

Luckily I was coming across from the East and was able to catch the Spadina streetcar down, so only 15 mins late.

During rush hour too!

I wonder what the stats are for the time of day these suicides happen. If you want to get the most attention gotta do it during rush hour.

A line mechanic is the guy who draws the chalk line around the dead body parts, right?

Also, there's a jumper apparently almost weekly.

Suicide rate in Toronto is about 9 per 100,000 population annually, so like 225 suicides a year total... 1/4 on the TTC... probably not that high...

Once a month at least, I'd say.

it was indeed a suicide. my brother's girlfriend was on that subway at the time and the driver came around and told everyone to get out.. she had a panicked voice and when my brother's gf asked her what was up she said "someone jumped in front of my car"

sad..

There's at least one per week.
They take them to St. Mike's mostly. I have a pal who works there.

did anyone see that episode of homicide about subway suicides? or the taxicab confessions documentary that led to that episode?
