Man deliberately has his hand amputed by a train for 7 Million Euros

A man in Germany took out several insurance policies and then wanted to collect millions of euros. Things went wrong.

What you don’t do to become a millionaire. The incredible story happened at the end of 2018. At that time Christian W. drove his daughter’s scooter to the Nordbögge train station in North Rhine-Westphalia . Once there, he threw the vehicle between the standing regional express and the platform – he put his left hand on the track between two wheels of the train. The train then left at 3.23 a.m. and over his hand, as reported by German media. She had to be amputated in the hospital.

Nobody believed him

The question is, why did he do that? W. had taken out a total of nine accident insurance policies for a total of seven million euros. After the amputation, he sent the claim letter to the insurance companies. In it he described that he had fallen with the scooter and got on the track with his hand. But neither the police nor the insurance companies and the Dortmund district court believed this.

The man was charged with insurance fraud and has now been sentenced to two years imprisonment for attempted serious fraud. The verdict is not yet final.
