An unidentified middle-aged woman was struck by
R 0 east-bound Amtrack train in a suicide attempt last
vening at Ann Arbor's downtown depot according to
Ann Arbor Police Officer Phil Scheel.
The woman, whose legs were severed by the train,
is in critical condition at University Hospital. Dr.
Brahm Shapiro said a team of plastic and orthopedic
surgeons were gathered at the hospital last night to

K. HUBBARD, an Amtrack fireman who was
driving the train at the time of the accident, said "I

sounded our horn several times and it looked like she
decided not to do what she started to do." Hubbard,
said he could not tell exactly what she was doing
because it was dark and foggy.
Train engineer W. Chittum said, "We put on the
emergency brakes, but it was too late." Chittum also
said he believed the woman had changed her mind at

Shapiro was on the train and was the first person to
initiate first aid. "She was conscious, and other than
the fact that she was missing her legs, she seemed to
be okay," he said.
Huron Valley Ambulance Service officials reported
that the woman's severed legs were also transported
to the hospital, but declined to say how cleanly they
had been severed.
The woman's name and age were being withheld by
police last evening pending notification of family.
