People like us, who have to travel daily through local trains will know the pain that we have to go through every single day, either because of the delays, or the lack of proper infrastructure at the railway stations. Had the footover bridge been wide enough, this incident may not have happened. But then as some people are saying on social media, “it was a disaster waiting to happen.”
