Man stops trams

On Thursday trams didn’t travel through Basztowa Lot as scheduled. The reason? A man sat on the tracks, not speaking a word to anyone who approached him. After numerous attempts to move him, the police were called who physically lifted the man off of the tracks. The identity of the man or his intentions are still yet to be announced. [Love Krakow]
