Here is where the HELPING BACKFIRED, and, after this “incident”, W-H-O, in her/his right state of mind would WANT to offer assistance??? Uh, that’d be N-O-B-O-D-Y!!! From the Front Page Sections, translated…
There was the handicapped passenger getting hurt by the trains at Bai-Fu station in Keelung two nights ago, the Taiwan Rail Stations investigated what had happened exactly, believed that the station operator, Chou was negligent, she’d gotten a reprimand; the Keelung City Government also had mechanics fix up the escalators.
The station manager at Chi-Du, Hsu said, that as the station operator, Chou took the father-daughter pair to cross the handicapped passageways, she should’ve used the intercom to make sure that there was NO train passing through. Even though Chou had the walkie talkie with her, she didn’t use it, causing the Dzi-Chang Train to not see them until it was too close, causing the passenger, Chang, to get SUCKED underneath the trains.
The daughter of the passenger, Chang said, that two days ago was the second time they’d crossed the older handicapped passageways, that last month, the elevator had broken too, and they were led by a station operator, and back then, the operator DID use the walkie talkie to make sure that there was NO trains coming through. Even though Chou had her walkie talkie, but she didn’t use it, until the Dzi-Chang Train came too close, causing the passenger, Chang, to get pulled under the wheels.
The daughter stated, she’d gone on the trains often, and she’d found that the elevators at Bai-Fu station are often under maintenance, which makes it hard for the handicapped passengers to exit, that, was why they’d risk crossing the tracks, hoping that the stations can get that improved.
And so, another C-A-S-E of how helping out BITES, the station operator WAS kind to take the father-daughter pair to cross, and, the operator was negligent in that s/he forgot to use the walkie talkie to make sure that there was NO trains coming, but, the station is at the most fault, for NOT fixing up the elevators.
