Left with the choice of tossing her precious durian or consuming it entirely, she decided to go with the latter.
Borrowing a saw, she hacked the durian in half and proceeded to eat it. Impressively, she managed to finish the whole thing just in time to catch her train.
The incident, which occurred on Dec. 29, was captured on video and emerged on Chinese social media immediately after.
While the female passenger’s actions may seem slightly excessive, it is surprisingly not the first case of emergency devouring in Chinese public transport stations.
In 2016, a woman reportedly ate 11 lbs of durian at a railway station in Anhui province. When she finally stopped as her train was about to leave, her nose started bleeding. Last year, another woman finished two durians on the spot at a Sichuan railway station.
