Beijing - A passenger was beaten to death by staff on a train in eastern China, state media reported, dealing a fresh blow to the rail industry's reputation following a fatal crash in July.

Three train staff seized the middle-aged man by the throat and savagely beat him after he intervened in an argument involving another passenger, Jiangxi Television, a local station, reported on Monday.

Doctors were summoned from an emergency centre near the station in Jiangxi province where the train stopped, but the man died before they arrived, the report said, citing witnesses and the hospital.

The television report showed a document signed by 20 passengers who had witnessed the alleged beating. "We all feel very angry about the violent beating of the passenger by the train staff," said a woman surnamed Lai who said she was in the same carriage as the man.

Now that is what I call “customer service” in a command economy.

After savagely beating the man to death the three attendants asked the other passengers if any of them had any ‘complaints’ about the train service. Strangely, none did. /s

The Chinese rail minister only took $125 million in kickbacks? What a piker. He needs to get into the green energy business. That’s where the real kickback money is.
