A campaign is currently in use to help prevent suicides being committed at railway stations.
The Small Talk Saves Lives campaign is backed by Network Rail, the Samaritans and the British Transport Police after a staggering 273 died in railway suicides in 2016/17.
Some of the suicides took place in the Dorset area, most recently in July where an artist – Lisa Barnes – 45, walked into the middle of train track.
One Bournemouth resident spoke on the matter of whether he would help a suicidal person on the platform.
He elaborated further on the topic.
Small Talk was created to reduce the number of suicides and also to get others to engage in conversation with their fellow commuters.
They feel a conversation could be the difference between someone taking their own life or living.
Another Bournemouth commuter has expressed his views on the matter and what should be done to help.
The campaign group carried out a survey amongst 5,000 people which resulted in a staggering 83% of respondents claiming that they would happily help those around them feeling suicidal.
Both South West Trains and Bournemouth Train station were contacted in regards to the story, but neither were available for comment.
