A 42-year-old man was hit and killed by a passenger train after he went through a fence hole as a shortcut at the Makkasan railway station to get to the Airport Rail Link station on Saturday morning, police said.

Police were alerted to the accident at 6.30am.

Police said Thossapol Yuenying, a resident of Yannawa district, was killed by the Bangkok-Aranyaprathet train.

Witnesses told police that Thossapol was seen coming into the station compound through a hole of the station's fence, which is used as a shortcut to get to the Airport Rail Link elevated train station above. But when he came through the fence, the Bangkok-Aranyaprathet train arrived and hit him.
