Man dies trying to save woman who fell from a railway bridge


A man has been killed after reportedly trying to rescue a woman who fell from a railway bridge.

Both the man and woman were hit by a train after the woman fell from the bridge and onto the tracks. The woman is alive and receiving treatment in hospital.



The incident happened just before 11am this morning at Chartham railway station, where the tracks were closed until 2.30pm as emergency services attended the scene.

The train involved was the 10:22 service from Ramsgate to Charing Cross, which travels through Chartham station without stopping.





The woman was airlifted to Kings College Hospital where she is being treated for her injuries.

Trains from Ramsgate to London have been rerouted, with replacement bus services in some places.
