all understand, the rails are live and it's counted as tresspassing if caught by authorities. Too many lives are taken by this mishap. Either the persons' are talking on the cell or listening to music and don't hear the horn.

please be aware...

condolences to the family.

Selfish prick. So he gets to die and the train crew gets to live with his death the rest of their lives.

What a swell guy he was.

Suicide is always selfish. This boy unfortunately was hurting and didn't see any other way out. I feel for the friends that watched him and tried to stop him from jumping in front of the train and for the train crew. They will have the image of what happened in their minds the rest of their lives.

So will the train crew who had to witness the selfish prick "jump" in front of the train.

What a complete waste of life and money.

Imagine the money the parents could have saved if he was not born.

if you're going to kill yourself don't do it so someone else has to live with it. by throwing yourself in front of a train you've screwed up those conductors lives forever. please make your suicide just that. one person killing themselves. a little common courtesy goes a long way.

excuse u im sorry but he was far from selfish, he was a good little boy and like any other teen he was troubled and hurt. this has hurt us all but it is no fault of his. its not very nice to talk about the deceased especially a child

my brother does have it in his mind forever it even makes him want to do it at times. i depise jon sory for doing this to us all but i still love him at the same time and do not think he was selfish. he was hurt and young

Most humans are selfish.

Stop making excuses for your selfish, "troubled" brother.

He made the lives of others difficult for his selfish actions.

My heart goes out to the EMS and train crew who had to deal with this selfish act.

Suicide IS a selfish act, I'll give you that, but you have no idea what was going through his mind to make him decide that suicide was the only answer. He may have been mentally ill and if so he should have been under psychiatric care. Mental illness is just as serious as any physical illness or disability.

As far as your last remark, that was a hurtful and nasty thing to say, it's bad enough his friends and family lost someone they love, it makes it worse when they read or hear about ignorant comments like the one you posted. I guarantee his parents loved him deeply and had a lot of good times and good memories with him and that means more than any amount of MONEY that could have been "saved". It's better to have loved and lost than never love at all! Shame on you for your SELFISH remarks.

Dont stoop to that level ashley. This is a place where anyone can say whatever they want. None of them are going to listen to you. Dont even get yourself stressed out over what others say. Nobody really knows what this kid was thinking and will say whatever the hell they want.

Whats done is done. There is no changing it. Just let it go

I know that, but it gets under my skin. No one knows anything about this wonderful kid, and they think that have the right to say that stuff? How can i let it go..you just dont simply let things like this go..
