For a dollar, I'd stand by the side of the tracks and push the idiot back onto them.

What a moron. We can only hope that Darwinism evolves some faster trains.

Errr, in high school we used to see who could get the closest to a passing freight train. We didn't stand in front of it, though; that's nuts.

We'd stand on the side of the track and reach out with our hands as it passed by.

And this is about 40 miles east of the line, on the stupid side.

The train had knocked Ray Brower out of his Keds the same way it had knocked the life out of his body.

Not that it takes any sort of knowledge of trains to realize how stupid this guy is, but I work at an engineering firm and design railroad bridges. I sent it to my coworkers... we all had a good laugh at just how ridiculous that is. Now I am just in amazment.

I would do it for $1 though. :)

I've told the story before, but I was on a flight once sitting in those backwards-facing seats on Southwest Airlines, and the guy across from me was a drunk guy who had lost two legs and an arm trying to jump onto a train. He seemed to be a bit screwed up by the experience, and was eventually removed from the plane for striking a flight attendant.

Teddy: He's a dog, he's definitely a dog...
Chris: He can't be a dog, he wears a hat and drives a car...
Vern: Yeah, that is weird. What the hell is Goofy?

Firm based out of the east called Ralph Whitehead Associates. We just started here in KC within the past 3 years, so I get to be on the ground floor of this office. :)

Thanks Flopnuts... this has made our whole office completely worthles for the rest of the day as we tell stories of accidents that people have seen while working with trains. :)

If you are saying your family members are engineeers and have hit people in similar incidents, I'd be willing to say that they didn't kill anybody. Those people killed themselves.

And there is a video clip floating around of a drunk chick staggering around some tracks in the woods at night. She dances right up onto the tracks, and blamo! She's gone.

It's really pretty disturbing.

There are quiet a few videos of things like that. Some railroads use them as part of their safety videos.

Really very little reason to be hit by a train, esp in this area. However in the NE US with the high speed commuter rails you can barely hear those things coming and they have speeds that range from 80-200 MPH. However, that is still not a valid excuse to be playing around the tracks.

About 10 years ago, my brother had this friend that had attempted to jump onto (or was off of?) a train. He was in one of those metal appartus things that kept his head and neck still. It must've been painful having those screws drilled into your skull.

True... you have a point there. Although, I always wondered why she was on a train track. Just because she is deaf doesn't mean she doesn't know what train tracks look like.

Her parents told her that train tracks were dangerous. She just didn't listen.

Um, removed from the plane? Did they just open up the door and chuck him out at 20,000 ft.?

Not too much dumber I am sure.

On top of that at least Evil Knievel made a "career" out of it, thus getting paid for it.
