Tokyo train station workers have discovered a deceased passenger on a train. He was supposed to have been on the train for nearly twelve hours since his death, according to Japanese media. During that time, no one notified the authorities.

Workers at a train station in Tokyo's Shibuya district found the man on his seat on May 11 before 8 p.m., “nearly 12 hours after he boarded the train,” the Japanese daily Asahi Shimbun reported on Monday. It added that at the time, “no one noticed anything unusual in the compartment.” Only at the final station, when the man was not moving or responding to messages, did the staff defibrillate using an AED and call the emergency services. They confirmed the passenger's death. Tests showed that he had been dead since around 8 a.m.

The train traveled over 650 kilometers that day

According to media reports, the man died of illness, but no details were given. The train in which he was found runs between Kanagawa and Utsunomiya stations. As the Asahi Shimbun reports, on May 11, the train turned around three times between the aforementioned stations. This means that in 12 hours it covered a distance of 652 kilometers. The train, consisting of 15 cars, can accommodate a total of about two thousand passengers.
