Show 39 Thursday 11 May

Watch today's show at grouper or YouTube.


Kia Ora. In Stick News today, a German man is still alive after his suicide attempt failed. But he now faces a bill for the damage he caused to the train.

In Germany a 47-year-old man tried to kill himself by jumping in front of a train.
But he misjudged the timing.
He jumped too late and instead of landing in front of the train, he crashed through the side window of the driver’s cabin.
He was then sued for damages of 4200 Euros. The court ordered the man to pay half the sum.

And that was Stick News for Thursday the 11th of May.
Kia Ora.
