Zoo station has a regular customer T. who shows up and threatens to jump under the trains. He’s got an ABI (Acquired Brain Injury) and I don’t think he’s suicidal but we have to take him seriously. Yesterday he upped the ante by covering his face with his own faeces and saying he had a knife. (he didn’t) The Control desk took that seriously and stopped me from leaving the Junction for Zoo Station. So I got to watch the police deciding what to do with T. on CCTV. The poor young police man who was holding T.s arm threw up twice at the smell or the idea of a face full of poo. After a 20 minutes train stoppage it was all over and I was allowed to go down to my station. Strange when you get there. You wouldn’t know anything dramatic had happened except for the policeman puke on the sidewalk. Easily fixed with hot water and disinfectant.
As for T. he seems to have been content with stopping the trains and having the police and ambulance attend. The police took him home. (on foot not in their car)
