Yesterday, I reported that there had been some kind of incident at Oval tube station. Some other news sources have now published information about what happened.
It was not a suicide, as various people assumed (or if it was, it appears to have been an unsuccessful attempt). Instead, South London today report:
"A 58-YEAR-OLD man had a lucky escape after being pulled from under a train at Oval Tube station yesterday (Thursday)".
Exactly how the man came to be on the track is unclear, but more is revealed by a London Daily News article, which reports:
"The man escaped with head injuries when he fell off the northbound Northern Line platform at Oval Station yesterday."
The Lurking about SE11 team extend wishes for a quick recovery!
