Like any great crime thriller, the Great Seagull Frankston Train Incident has presented a twist in the narrative.
If you’re playing catch-up – it’s the story that’s been hailed the greatest troll/urban legend in recent memory.
Guys this is the true crime story of the decade:Yesterday a friend told me what might well be the best story I’ve ever...Posted by Chris Harrigan on Sunday, 31 January 2016
On this afternoon’s Veronica & Lewis show on Triple J, “Sam from Melbourne” called to confirm, “100 per cent, I saw it with my own eyes”.
Sam-from-Melbourne says the incident happened back in 2007, “hence why Metro probably wouldn’t be aware of it”.
He says it’s, “pretty much as it’s been reported on social media.” As for the lack of photographic evidence, he chalks that up to the fact that “we didn’t have smart phones or anything back then”.
He claims to have a friend who can corroborate the story, but the friend is in South America and unavailable for comment..
The caller agrees there were 15 to 20 birds at the scene, but then says half a dozen to a dozen flew into the carriage.
Make up your own mind, but this caller has hardly put the incident to bed in our eyes. It lacks vivid detail or new information to be a truly convincing piece of evidence.
Take a listen:
