Imizuzu emithathu, isitimela esinejubane elikhulu lase-Japan ebesithwele abagibeli abayi-160 sishiywe singenamshayeli ngemuva kokuba umshayeli athathe ikhefu ephuthumayo yokuya endlini yangasese.

Umsebenzi womshayeli ongagagulwanga ngegama kungenzeka uphele, njengoba manje ebhekene nokuqondiswa kwezigwegwe ngalesi senzo esiyingozi.

Oneminyaka engama-36, ubike ukuthi uphethwe isisu ngesikhathi isitimela sihamba ngesivinini phakathi kwase-Atami nase-Mishima e-Southeastern Japan, futhi wacela umsizi wakhe – owayengafanele ukushayela isitimela – ukuba asishayele ngenkathi eshiya umsebenzi wakhe.

Umsizi wakhe naye obhekene nokuqondiswa kwezigwegwe, uhlale esihlalweni sokuqhuba isitimela, kodwa akazange athinte noma yiziphi izilawuli ngesikhathi sesigameko, kusho i-Central Japan Railway Company.

Umshayeli kungenzeka ukuthi ubalekile ngekhefu lakhe langasese.

Kodwa isitimela safika esiteshini saso e-Mishima sekudlule umzuzu owodwa, nokuyilokho okudale uphenyo! (I-Japan iyaziqhenya ngokugcina isikhathi.)

Ngesikhathi umshayeli echaza okwenzakele, utshele u-opharetha, i-JR Central, ukuthi akasakhumbuli okwenzekile, kodwa wathi ubephethwe isisu.

Wengeze ngokuthi wayengafuni ukulahlekelwa yisikhathi ngokumisa isitimela esitobhini esilandelayo sohambo.

“Angibikanga ngoba bekuyihlazo,” esho.

Abashayeli base-Shinkansen batshelwa ukuthi uma bezizwa begula, noma bazithola bengakwazi ukushayela isitimela, kufanele bamise isitimela esiteshini esiseduze esikhona.

Lesi sigameko siyaqala ngqa ukwenzeka emlandweni wase-Shinkansen, osukela onyakeni we-1964, lapho umshayeli ashiya isitimela sihamba ngenkathi sinabagibeli.
