Even as the scale of the April 25 train disaster here was unfolding, 43 employees of rail operator West Japan Railway Co. chose to go out bowling, sources said.
...JR West sources said none of the 43 participants in the bowling event, conductors based in Osaka's Tennoji Ward, suggested canceling the planned outing. They started bowling at 12:30 p.m., just hours after a commuter train derailed, sending the first two cars plowing into the first-floor garage of a multistory apartment building.
Officials said those involved did not have to work that day but had learned of the train accident. Thirteen of them, mainly young employees, knew a major disaster was unfolding that involved many casualties.
Still, they met at a bowling alley in Higashi-Sumiyoshi Ward in Osaka and stayed for about 90 minutes.
