Selfie warning as woman dies in Bangkok train collision

The state railways have warned people never to take chances with trains and not take selfies on the tracks after a woman died.

Wilailak, 28, had been drinking beer with her friend Amnat, 24, when they decided to go on the tracks for some selfies.

They were hit by a train near the Sam Sen station in Phayathai district. She lost a leg and and later died in Ramathibodi Hospital. He suffered head trauma and is recovering in Wachira Hospital.

Deputy director of operations at the state railways Somyuth Reuanngam said that everyone should stay off the tracks. People who survived being hit by trains said that they never heard them coming, he said.

People should never take chances and certainly not take selfies. It is very easy to become distracted and trains are unforgiving usually resulting in death or serious injury at best in the event of a collision.
