Woman Eats Entire Durian When She Can’t Bring it Inside a Train Station


A woman in China decided to just slice up and eat an entire durian after she was told she could not carry the pungent fruit inside a train station. 

Despite its popularity in Asia, the spiky fruit is widely considered “hazardous” to carry in public transport in many parts of the continent.


When the woman tried to bring the fruit with her to a railway station in the Zhejiang city of Quzhou, the security staff barred her from entering, Shanghaiist reports.

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.

When a woman was denied her $200 bottle of cognac in her carry-on at the airport, she decided to chug it.
