Train Cancelled After Conductor Succumbs to Diarrhea
OSAKA -- About 300 passengers were forced to leave a train at JR Tsukaguchi Station in Amagasaki after the conductor suffered a violent bout of diarrhea in the driver's cabin early on Friday, West Japan Railway Co. (JR West) said.
The evacuation took place after the conductor fell ill just before the train pulled in at Tsukaguchi Station. The driver scheduled to take over the train entered the cabin at about 6.15 a.m. to find the floor covered in feces.
Station workers immediately cleaned the floor of the driver's room, but decided to cancel the train due to the lingering aroma.
Passengers were merely told that the train would be delayed, and were asked to board the next one.
