In this case, make sure that the CCTV video is distributed widely to media and seen by community leaders who may be able to help calm the crowds.

It's wrong to think of this as a stand-alone event. ...

As far as I'm aware, trains still have a 'dead man's switch' on them, so the train will come to a halt if the driver loses consciousness. An alert driver who misses a signal is more dangerous.
