According to witnesses, the train was crowded, and while Tuli tried to board, it started moving, she lost balance, and fell into the gap.
A 42-year-old woman died on Friday night as she fell into the gap between the platform and the footboard while boarding the 69140 Surat-Virar down shuttle at Palghar station.
Tuli Michael Vishwakarma, the victim, was trying to board the coach where her two children were, when the train started moving. Her husband, Michael, a watchman at Nav Tara apartment in Palghar (West), was in another coach. The
couple and their 20-year-old son and 17-year-old daughter were going to Virar to meet Tuli’s brother.
According to witnesses, the train was crowded, and while Tuli tried to board, it started moving, she lost balance, and fell into the gap.
The train was halted immediately and a Palghar government railway police (GRP) personnel rushed her to Rural Hospital, Palghar. She died at the hospital because of a cardiorespiratory failure caused by shock, said doctors. Pramod Babar, inspector, Palghar GRP said a case of accidental death has been registered and they are investigating the case. “The funeral was held on Saturday morning,” he said.
The height of the three platforms at Palghar were recently increased by the Western Railway (WR) after commuters complained about the gap between the train and the platforms in stations between Virar and Dahanu, said a WR official. “Despite warning commuters to not board trains in motion, they do not listen, said the official.
