The driver of the train, which was the only person on board, turned out unscathed at accident, which occurred shortly after midnight in Spijkenisse, near the port city from Rotterdam.
The front of the subway remained supported by the sculpture at a height of 10 meters, above the water.
The subway derailed and ended up on the monument called ‘Saved by the whale’s tail’. Literally that’s what happened, “said Carly Gorter of the Rijnmond Regional Security Authority.
Is incredible. The driver was saved by the whale’s tail, “he added.
The reasons for the incident are being investigated.
The sculptures of two whales, which are submerged in the water leaving their tails in the open, were built about 20 years ago, in a park located under the skytrack.
One of them was the one that stopped and saved the subway car and its driver.
