Just wanted to post a lil good news. It is good to see there is still good in people to help out. Big props to the Australians i would hate to think how this would of turned out say in NY. Most would of took out their cell phones and recorded it instead of jumping so fast to help maybe im wrong but leave that 1 up 2 you 2 decide.

Nice story, always a bit uplifting to hear about and see people rushing to assist those in need.

As far as the US, well the areas of the country where people would rush to assist typically don't have those types of commutes.

Okies for one, and I am sure there are more, are still that breed of people that will rush to assist first... often before assessing the risks.. (got to love red necks some times)

Well, quickly think of some other method. Now...fast! A man may loose his leg if you don't act quickly. Crap or get off the pot. I think they did a tremendous job. Hats off to all the rescuers!

In emergency rescue situations, many of the life saving techniques and MacIver solutions ARE and always will be risky....hence the emergency and the rescuers professional sense of urgency.

You cant judge one part of the of huge continent like Australia on just one part of it!
WA is not indicative of most of Australia so your comments are very big generalisation perhaps what you meant to say was i wish i could live in WA or Qld or croc dundee land NT possibly.
I think Sydney and Melbourne might possibly surprise you. You know, like lots of screams of Allah akbar at certain times & violent crims like most big cities not really safe for most US citizens i suggest!.

I think you underestimate the rest of Australia, yeah of course we Sandgroppers are superior in every regard, but I'm sure the same thing could have happened in western Sydney, or outer Melbourne or anywhere else that there is commuter congestion.

It couldn't have happened on the line I commute on because there just isnt the volume of people at a station to be able to do that. Same city, similar trains... just nowhere near as packed!

My point: PUT SOME MORE TRAINS ON THE J-LINE COLIN!!!

Not at all when you have been to Sydney to live & work for at least 6 months like i have done in perth (yes i have been to WA) then get back to me with an informed opinion.
Sydney is nothing like perth at all. Perth is very homogeneously Caucasian and very similar to brisbane much like a regional center any where in Australia for the most part. Perth is very much like police state as well i found. And as i am big on civil liberties i wouldn't choose it for a life time.
Sydney is the most racially/culturally diverse Metropolis in Australia. I see the ATS fan base for Australia seems to be mainly WA though reading this forum so its an unfair fight if you want to argue the point!
