    When will people learn?

    Fitness model was killed during a photoshoot on train tracks. Honestly, I know fitness models are all steroid-brawn/photoshop and no brains (usually) but you'd think by now even they would take the hint.

    Fitness model killed by train made freak mistake, friends say

    Yes, an unfortunate lapse in judgement, to be sure. Hopefully, like-minded people will learn from this incident.

    Tragic and i feel for his family. With that being said, simple rule: DON'T TRESPASS. The train will always win.

    Well, it's a mistake he won't be making a second time.

    You know... Because he's dead now.

    My son knew him personally. He was an ex-Army Ranger. He was John's platoon leader while they were stationed in Korea. It was a tragedy for sure, and I've read some of the news accounts of what could have caused him to get hit. You'd have to read the article I guess as everyone is being way over judgemental about this here. Thoughts and prayers to his family and friends. He had made it big and was devoted to fitness.

    An equally foolish movie making crew set up on a railway trestle in GA about a year ago resulting in a death:

    Movie crew hit by train wasn't supposed be on track, officials say | Fox News

    Expect a train on any track in any direction at any time.

    No offense intended and certainly no judgement on my part... It is, what it is.

    Understand, I'm in no way trying to pick a fight or create hard feelings. I read the article which is how I came to my conclusion specifically from this part of the story, "They have interviewed witnesses who saw Plitt standing on the track even as the train's horn was blaring, Burbank police Sgt. Scott Meadows said."

    I've lost many a buddy on the battlefield and here at home. Unfortunately some of those were stupid deaths and others were good deaths. I only hope that if my decision brings my life to an end it's a good death.

    Anyway, I feel for the living left behind.
