    Sharon attempted suicide at Jalahalli metro station

    Metro services were disrupted for approximately 40 minutes

    Four metro trains were temporarily halted at adjacent stations

On this evening, a tragic incident unfolded at a Bengaluru metro station. A young man named Sharon, hailing from Kerala, attempted suicide by leaping onto the tracks at Jalahalli metro station.

The sudden event caused a period of chaos, leading to a complete cessation of Nagasandra to Yeshwantpur metro traffic for approximately 40 minutes. The condition of Sharon, the young man involved, is reported to be severe.

Promptly responding to the alarming situation, vigilant staff members successfully rescued Sharon and promptly admitted him to the hospital. The repercussions of this incident reverberated through the metro system, particularly affecting commuters traveling from Majestic towards Nagasandra, who faced challenges in accessing the metro services.

Sharon, accompanied by a friend, had procured a ticket to travel towards Majestic. Upon entering the platform and positioning himself at the far end, the young man took a drastic step as the metro train approached around 7:12 pm.

Swift action by the alert Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) staff averted a tragedy, rescuing him and swiftly transporting him to a nearby hospital for immediate medical attention.

The incident resulted in the temporary halting of four trains at adjacent stations. Passengers were safely disembarked, and alternative arrangements were implemented to manage the disruption.

Notably, the tracks are accompanied by a 750-volt heavy power line, and Sharon suffered an electric shock during the attempt. Initially taken to Sanjeevini Hospital in an ambulance, he is currently in critical condition, with serious injuries to his head due to electrocution, necessitating his placement in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
