Just an hour after the publication, Tamás Deák, a reader of the Hungarian version has sent a period article which indicates that in the 1962 accident it was his grandfather Károly Deák, portier of the railway station, who saved the lives of the people standing in the way of the train, by shouting them away just in time. This is why in the otherwise populated station there was no casualty.
