Capitalism compels girl to jump in front of train for phone, nearly dies...

if it wasn't for the two guys in the video that risked their lives to save her.

A similar thing happened last year in the UK, but in that case, the woman died. This is why consumer culture is so dangerous.

While TODAY.com's attempts to reach the Companhia Paulista de Trens Metropolitanos (CPTM) to confirm that this incident happened didn't receive any replies, G1 Sao Paulo, a part of media conglomerate Organizações Globo, did receive a statement. According to the outlet, this near-miss occurred on March 26, at approximately 12:30 p.m. local time.

R8, another local news website, clarifies that the incident happened at the Corinthians-Itaquera station in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and that the woman had jumped onto the tracks to retrieve her cellphone after accidentally dropping it.

The article links to other cases where in most cases the person died.

EDIT: FURTHER PROOF OF CAPITALISM DECAYING PPL:

Chick drops to the tracks for a phone while train is coming - check

Everyone but one guy tries to help her - check

******* filming the train coming to kill the girl instead of trying to help - check

Bystanders feigning concern after the girl is safe - check

As opposed to communism where anyone who doesn't accept their Spartan living conditions is sent to the gulag until they come out with the one right opinion?

What's the views of those on the fence now with kibbutz? They were looked upon favorably by regulars here a year ago or so.
