    Former Japan international rugby player Yasunori Watanabe died after falling in front of a train over the weekend, police said on Monday.


    Watanabe, 35, fell onto the track from a platform at the Kamakura station in the south of Tokyo and was run over by an incoming train late on Saturday.


    The former flanker was capped 32 times - scoring eight tries - and played in three consecutive rugby World Cups from 1999 to 2007.</ARTICLE>

    From the guardian:

    An employee at the station saw Watanabe falling off the platform at
    about 9.30pm on Saturday night, when there were no other people around
    him, according to police.

      Japanese police are treating it as an accidental fall at present... last week would have been cherry blossom viewing (hanami) time....the locals like to drink a few under the blossoms....
