OSAKA (Kyodo) A man wrenched open the door of a departing bullet train and jumped out Wednesday on the Sanyo Shinkansen Line at Hiroshima Station and another man in another car failed in a similar attempt shortly afterward, causing the train to be delayed for about 20 minutes and affecting some 1,100 passengers, West Japan Railway Co. said.

Nozomi No. 59 stopped shortly after 9 a.m. after the first man opened the door and jumped out. As the train restarted, the other man tried to open a door, forcing the train to stop again.
