LONDON (Reuters) - A British train conductor stamped and carefully returned the ticket of a slumbering passenger without realizing the man was dead.

Shortly afterwards the train pulled into York station in northern England and rail staff alerted paramedics when they realized the man was not breathing.

"The conductor needn't have been so careful, as it turned out that the passenger had expired, long before his ticket ever did," said a report in the British Transport Police's staff magazine.
