A subway train derailed near Rotterdam in the Netherlands and was suspended in the air by a whale. No one was injured in the crash.
The incident happened to a local tram where a whale fish sculpture saved the train at Spijkenisse on the outskirts of Rotterdam, which its driver wanted to stop at the last station built at a considerable height above the ground. But suddenly the metro train picked up speed and hit a safety barrier at the end of the track, breaking it and exiting.
At the dead end of the metro station straight from the track
surrounded by water on all sides. The station is built at a considerable height above the ground with the help of large concrete pillars.
Therefore, it was clear that metro train will fell down straight to the ground from a great height after derailment. But the most shocking aspect of this accident is that what could have happened certainly did not happen.
Beneath the station are two huge whales made of metal as giant artifacts by the water’s edge. When the metro train derailed, one of the two whales stopped it with its tail and it remained suspended in the air instead of falling to the ground.
The artistic movement of art
The whale stopped the subway with its tail because the two whales are made as if they were jumping into the water while playing. In a way that half of their body is in water but their tales are in the air.
Rescue workers who arrived on the scene shortly after the incident were also amazed to see how ‘artistically’ one of the whales ‘artistically’ lowered the metro train ten meters below Was saved from falling into the canal passing through.
The driver also came down by himself according to the local metro company,
it is not yet clear why the accident took place, but no one was injured. The driver of the metro train also got out of his cabin in the first bogie of the tram parked on the tail of a whale and got down safely. As it was the last station, there were no passengers on the subway train at that time.
The metro train was badly damaged in the crash and rescue workers are trying to get it back on track by lifting it from the tail of the whale with a crane.
