Man jumps from Sector 59 metro station, injures self | Noida News


NOIDA: A 30-year-old man suffered injuries after he jumped from the top of the metro station being constructed in Sector 59 on Wednesday, police said. He has been identified as Roshan Vadiya, resident of Mamura and native of Kasauli in Uttarakhand. While the jump from over 100ft did not kill the man, he received two fractures in his feet and a head injury. He was admitted to Bharat Hospital in Sector 63.

A metro security guard told police that around 11am, Roshan entered the premises wearing an engineer’s helmet, adding that he initially approached the train tracks. He said the man then jumped from one of the platforms and fell on the main road. “We were shocked when the man fell with a loud thud. While his feet became lifeless, we did not notice any blood,” Ramesh, a fruit vendor told TOI. He added that some onlookers started videographing him. A woman, who was standing nearby, and an auto driver, together took the man to the hospital.

An official at the hospital said, “Roshan suffered fractures in both his ankles and a head injury. A CT Scan will be conducted soon. He is in ICU and not in a position to speak.” A labourer working at the metro station told TOI the man lives in gali number 7 in Mamura. He said, “Roshan apparently had an argument at home on Tuesday night and was seen roaming around an electric pole. It appeared as if he was trying to commit suicide. Akhilesh Tripathi, SHO, Phase III, said any reason for the alleged suicide attempt is unknown because the man is unable to talk.

Meanwhile, onlookers said after the incident, work at the metro station stopped for around two hours . “We are taking legal advice to explore whether we can send a notice to DMRC about its security system,” Tripathi said. DMRC, in a statement, said, “Around 12 noon, an incident was reported from the forthcoming Sector 59 metro station , where a person trespassed into the station and jumped to ground. He was immediately rushed to the nearest hospital with a leg injury. Police is investigating the matter.”
