Falling asleep on public transport may be much more dangerous than it seems.
A man’s arm was severed after it was accidentally hit by an incoming bus on Saturday morning.
According to Facebook user Aqu Si Val Coe, who was on the same bus that the unidentified man was riding, the incident happened at 9:30am along EDSA-Kamuning in Quezon City.
She explains in the Facebook post she shared on Saturday that the bus accidentally hit the man’s arm because it was hanging out of the window. The man was sleeping before the incident occurred.
