Man 'Cuts Off Both Legs Under A Train' To Claim £2.4 Million Insurance Payout

A man deliberately chopped off his own legs to claim a £2.4 million insurance payout but instead has ended up with a suspended jail sentence and a heavy fine. 
A court has determined the defendant named only as Sandor Cs., due to strict local privacy laws, purposely lied down in front of a train so he could pocket the cash in 2014.

The shocking incident meant both his legs were amputated from the knee down and he has been using prosthetic limbs and remained wheelchair-bound ever since.
