    I was on a train Monday night when the TTC announced the first "personal injury at track level." Transferred to a different line and they announced the second "incident." Two of my friends were affected as well. Despite my awareness of past subway suicides through the few incidents that make it on the news and in social media postings, it was quite shocking for me to experience the immediate aftermath in person for the first time, even though I did not see the actual victims jumping. And it happened twice in one day. Most of these incidents are impulsive and would have been prevented had there been a barrier. But on the other hand I don't want fares to go up to cover the cost because I'm already cash strapped and dependent on the TTC.
