Object thrown from passing train hits my wife on the chest.

01 Sep 2018 13:49

Whilst having a pleasant walk along the sea wall from Dawlish to Dawlish Warren a scumbag thought it would be entertaining to lob, what looked like a 1 inch by 2 inch dark colured pebbel/stone out of the railway carriage.

The object hit my wife wife with enough force to cause pain and leave a mark on her T shirt. The object had enough force to bounce off my wife at some speed and off the sea wall. The train passed at 20-30mph.

If only I could have a few seconds with this ignorant person to vent my anger at this senseless act which could have caused significant injury if it had landed a few inches higher.

Also reported to BTP.

With a bit of luck, someone on the train might have seen this senseless act and be able to give a description of the perpetrator. Deedoodle, I hope your wife is not too shaken up and it hasn’t put her off walking the sea wall.
