Oblivious Pedestrian Struck by Train in Brazil

An oblivious pedestrian with no apparent situational awareness and no peripheral vision was walking across railway tracks in Brazil and earned himself a mighty slap from a passing train he never saw coming. He almost made it, but not quite. Oddly, he didn’t react to the coming train at all.

I don’t even understand how he had no awareness of something big coming his way. You can usually feel the rumbling of the ground and the turbulence in the air as a train approaches, so even if he was listening to a really loud music, there were other things to alert him of an approaching monster. It didn’t look like a suicide to me.

          1. It is possible to be completely unaware of one’s surroundings under certain medical circumstances. I know from personal experience, if your body is crapping out on you or something is temporarily impeding on cognition then you could be completely oblivious to everything while auto piloting around the place.

  1. you could be the bionic man blessed with einstien brain cells and still end up crossing the street….towards the grim reaper.

    only fate or stupidity dictates who makes it across each and every time!
    nevermind trains hitting pedestrians, look at the folks getting killed by cars .

    i’ve also watched elderly people half dead/ half alive behind wheels and half dead/half alive trying to cross streets..

    safe right of way’s poker game indeed, fates bluff vs your hand

    god bless them, i’ve seen elderly people trying to cross the street and almost gettting hit many times…
    their sometimes inhibited ability to judge speed and space makes it such a dangerous move

  2. I work with an IT company that specializes in Long Term Care Medical programming. I spend a lot of time in these old folks homes. Most of them aren’t half aware of who they are and what’s going on around them. So, to answer the questions concerning how this could happen or why they wouldn’t see it, or feel it. Most old folks turn into toddelors mentally, They are clueless and zoned out.

    1. some of them are so lonely ..just breaks my heart
      i see them in the food store buying one tomato.. one tiny pork chop..one onion. you canfeel even a meal is a lonely time for them ;-( and they get in a taxi to go home 9and you know the fcab fare is going to empty their pockets but they got no car and no caring family.
      i dont think death is folks wretched place, its going to be growing old…alone and lonely
      *on that sparkling note happy thanksgiving

  3. How an you not hear a train… Unless that’s how they wanted to end it. Messy, painful, and never a hundred percent success rate. Then what to do when you have no legs? Toss yourself out of your wheelchair, into oncoming traffic? Where there is a will there’s a way. I’d prefer a nice calm drowning, and hold my breath, like a free dive, till my brain forgot to breathe. Painless, and no mess. I wouldn’t want to burden anyone with cleaning me up. Picking my parts up, and so forth. To each his/her own. *shrugs*
