Hundreds of children nearly fall to their death at train stations across Sydney

Apr 11, 2017News

Hundreds of children have come within a whisker of death after plunging through the gap between trains and platforms at Sydney’s stations, the Daily Telegraph reports.

RTBU NSW Secretary Alex Claassens said:

“Station staff and train guards are absolutely vital in protecting the safety of commuters.”

“While CCTV can monitor the welfare of commuters, only trained transport staff who are available on site and can intervene to save lives and reduce the risk of serious injury.”

“Any proposal to remove guards from trains and to cut station staff further must be carefully considered against the need to protect commuter safety.”
