At the age of twenty, a young woman tried to end her life without success yesterday, at the Genlis station in Côte-d’Or, sitting on the tracks.
The young woman was treated by the emergency services on Thursday at the end of the morning, at the Genlis station. Conscious, they partially cut off both of her legs and took her to the University Hospital Center (CHU) in Dijon.
Despite the emergency braking of the train that linked Besançon to Dijon, the conductor could not avoid it by crushing his legs. The gendarmes confirmed that it was a suicide attempt, reports The public good.
Firefighters, as well as SNCF technical teams, were present at the scene and the train passengers had to be evacuated by bus.
At the scene, the gendarmes made observations and traffic was restored a few hours later.
