BBC: Family killed by high-speed train

31 August 2005

A mother and her two children have been killed after apparently jumping in front of a Heathrow Express train travelling at up to 100mph. The woman, 27, and a five-year-old girl died immediately after jumping from a platform at Southall, west London. A nine-month-old boy died later at Ealing Hospital from multiple injuries.

Police said the incident is not being treated as suspicious.

A BTP spokesman said: "It appears the three people jumped from the platform."

A terrible tragedy. If that woman commited suicide (if that´s what happened) it´s incredibly selfish that she made her five-year-old daughter and nine-month-old son die too. It could have been an accident, but it´s very strange that they jumped in front of the train if not to commit suicide.
