Man Reading Bible Aloud On London Train Causes Passengers To Evacuate

Hundreds of thousands of commuters experienced major disruption during rush hour on Monday morning after passengers evacuated themselves from a train in London and spilled on to the track because they feared a fellow passenger was acting erratically.

Little did they know a man in a different carriage was scaring the shit out of other passengers. As the train approached Wimbledon station, the male passenger decided to loudly read out passages from the Bible, just in case other people hadn’t heard the word of God that morning.

According to some people on social media, this particular individual said at one point: “Death is not the end.” Not exactly the type of thing you want to hear anywhere at any point in time. The Richmond and Twickenham Times says he was also reciting passages about gay people.

As the passengers forced open the doors and climbed frantically onto the tracks, the rail power lines were cut. The train was travelling from Shepperton to Waterloo, one of London’s busiest commuter lines.

A witness told: “I specifically heard him say things about homosexuality and sex before marriage being sins and how we had to repent for our sins, the lord gave his son for our sins et cetera. I sort of zoned out a little after that as I had no interest in listening to him.”

A British Transport Police spokesman said:“We were called to Wimbledon station and a man in his 20s was spoken to and given some advice. There were no arrests or injuries and services were disrupted after passengers self evacuated from the train.”

South West Railways said:“Our control centre received an emergency call from a driver in the Wimbledon area stating that a passenger had left the train and on was on the track. Because of this it was necessary to turn off the current in the area until it was deemed that the person was in a position of safety.”
