A Metro train in Rotterdam overshot the end of its track, but caught on a giant whale tail sculpture instead of falling 30 feet to the ground. No passengers were onboard, and the driver escaped unharmed. Now they have to figure out how to get the train down safely.

The sculpture, incidentally, is called "Saved by the Whale's Tale."

@KelsonV I am amazed they don’t have something to stop that thing at the end.

@cs They do, but apparently it jumped over them.
