    What a tragedy. Several questions come to mind:
    – Why didn’t the train driver stop? Contrary to popular belief about trains needing a long distance to stop, modern trains can stop surprisingly quickly. In a port area, you don’t expect a train to move around at high speed anyway.

    – What is someone in civilian clothes doing within a port area WITH HEADPHONES ON and LISTENING TO MUSIC? A port area is an industrial zone and accidents can happen. This is not to blame the victim though, but the port’s management should learn from this.

    Life can be fragile. One minute, you are minding your own business, making all kinds of plans. The next minute, your life changes in a very drastic way.
