Forget The Alarm Clock Didnt Go Off Japanese Man Has Perfect Excuse

 

Updated : Aug 10, 2009

A Japanese railway worker halted a commuter train by pressing an emergency stop button because he needed an excuse for being late, police said after arresting the man on Monday.


Masahiro Matsumoto, 23, employed at the Nishioji station in Kyoto prefecture, pressed a roadside emergency stop button at a train crossing on Monday morning, causing a Nara line train to stop for about four minutes.

A police spokesman quoted Matsumoto as saying: "I was running late for work and I thought it could be an excuse if a train stopped because of the emergency stop."

The police officer told AFP that Matsumoto, himself a rail commuter, was trying to cause follow-up delays on the train line so that he could "tell his boss that his late arrival could not be helped."

Police were staking out the crossing following six similar cases and were investigating whether the railway employee was responsible for any of them.

West Japan Railway Co said in a statement: "We sincerely regret the arrest of our employee, which caused our customers and others concerned to lose trust in us."
