A train driver saved the life of a teenager
On the stretch "Strumkivka-Uzhgorod", the machinist of the diesel train number 6596 "Khust-Uzhgorod" applied the emergency brake due to the presence of a person near the track who did not react to audio signals. Thus he managed to prevent the collision.
Law enforcement officials identified the intruder who was crossing the track in the wrong place. It was a 15-year-old boy. It was found out that the boy studies in one of the boarding schools in Uzhgorod district. The teenager had willfully left the school without any permission.
Law enforcement officials explained the boy the danger of being on the railway tracks and the consequences that might be.
