MOSCOW, Aug. 11 (UPI) -- Passengers of a Russian train finished the beer of man who fell off while trying to get fresh air during a trip from Moscow to the town of Petushki.

The train took a hard turn while he had a car door open and the unnamed man tumbled off.

He left some luggage, including some tools, and a beer behind. The man's belongings just sat there for a while before a male passenger reportedly picked them up and finished the beer, the Moskovsky Komsomolets reported.

Well okay then.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

So the other passengers just took his stuff (even giving the guy's tools away). I gather the fall killed him then?

You would not know that unless you stopped the train. That does not seem to be the case.

Ok, so if he's alive then the other passengers straight up stole the guy's stuff...pretty damn low IMO.

I think he was pretty much considered "dead" and the people just helped themselves to his stuff.

The article seems to say it's just a random passenger. The poor man was catapulted out and no good samaritans were around to help out. Maybe it's a common occurance and people are just used to it?

Looks like, had they pulled the emergency stop, the beer would have gotten warm...

Makes me kind of wonder if the poor guy got a helping hand 'falling' out simply for his beer & tools... According to the article the random passenger doesn't plan on keeping the tools, but has a buddy in mind for them.

It's probably the sequel; "Throw Papa From the Train". Hehe.
