Man Dies, No One Notices
Yahoo News offers up
this brief report about a British train conductor who "stamped and carefully returned the ticket of a slumbering passenger without realizing the man was dead."
I guess people only realized the guy was dead once the train pulled into the station (York) and he failed to wake up. Now, by coincidence, I took this very same train last month, and the seats were pretty cramped, so either the train was quite empty, or whoever was sitting next to the dead guy was really oblivious. The story reminds me of the old urban legend
about the guy who dies in his office, sitting at his desk, but none of his co-workers notice.
