Around 8:30 am on Monday, one of the busiest train lines in London, England carrying passengers from Shepperton to Waterloo was paralyzed. Users panicked after a person inside the vehicle began reading Bible passages and reciting phrases such as "death is not the end." Although the reason for widespread despair remains unclear, the individuals forced the doors of the train to get out of there as soon as possible.

Passengers panicked fast

According to British newspaper The Guardian, after the people banged the doors, they crowded the rails. To prevent users from being electrocuted, the energy of the railway lines had to be suspended.

One of the witnesses, 42-year-old Ian O'Sullivan, described the circumstances of the event. "He [suspect] said, 'Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to speak to you regarding something, and that something is the message of the Lord, Jesus Christ, he is here to heal your sins'," O'Sullivan told The Guardian. "The Bible says that homosexuality is sin and sex before marriage is a sin. You need to repent."

On Twitter, Ian also said that the biblical reading generated a kind of "agitation" in people, especially the part about the 'Last Judgment.' He also said that the unknown man interrupted the 'preaching' and lowered his head after someone told him that the passengers were frightened by his conduct.

The Englishman, through several posts, reported every moment of the event. He pointed out that a guard appeared and advised the others that the suspect would be taken by "some men in suits," possibly to be questioned.

However, after "men of little faith" suspected him of being a terrorist, the police talked to the protagonist of the episode and treated him with respect when they saw that there was nothing wrong with him.

Ian photographed the scene. The 'prophet' can be seen with a backpack and dressed in dark clothing in the background.

'Bible Man' and the passengers

People were terrified of Bible passages read aloud. However, despite the problem being solved, the evacuation of the train and the paralysis of several other lines irritated the users of the London transport.

A spokesman for the British Transport Police (BTP) said they were alerted to the situation at 8:11 am "after reports of a disturbance on a train to Waterloo." The BTP said it continues to investigate the reason for the panic. There were no injuries or arrests. The subject's name was kept confidential.
