On the contrary EGGD, it happens about 250 times per year in the UK. And if Switzerland is anything like the UK, it's not special teams who clear up the mess, it's ordinary ambulance crews, police and railway workers like I used to be. In fact, I had to go to five such incidents in my area over 12 years. It's not nice.

EGGD, I thought they where on the train, as your 2 points are correct. If you guys do not know until recently the UK railways have been vey dagerous as they have not been maintaining them up to standard.

You understood it wrong, there are about 600 suicides in Switzerland every year. I think the "one every second day" is only for trains...
That's slightly above the average worldwide, Russia, for example, has many more, but they are counted in suicides per 100000 persons, what means that there are fare many suicides in countries like Russia. (Sorry to all russians, it's just an example, we had that in school).
