Ferdinando's Last Ride
You might've heard that overnight train travel in Europe is occasionally risky, but this is the first time we'll tell you that taking the train in northern Italy can have serious health consequences. So, for that matter, can going on holidays.
It's all about Ferdinando Borelli, an old Italian guy who took a holiday recently. On the trip back from Savona to Turin, he had a heart attack (quietly, we presume) and sat dead in his seat. Other passengers presumed he was asleep. It seems even the ticket guys didn't want to disturb him, because he traveled between Savona and Turin six times before cleaners tried to wake him up and couldn't. That's why holidays and train travel are bad for your health. But then again, so's staying at home.
