Stupid is the dispatcher that tells the boys that there are no bears in Ohio. There have been several bear sightings reported in northeast Ohio.

Climbing through the train...yeah right. They wanted to go for a ride and then they chickened out...teenagers have no brains sometimes. Hahahahaha

Actually, it was really smart and responsible of them to call for help when they got scared instead of making a rash, fear-based decision that could have put them in danger. And it sounds like they'll have a pretty decent story to tell.

You should all probably take a moment to reflect on being a teenager. Unless you had an unusually boring life, I will bet each of you made some really *awesome* choices.

My coworker and I though it was hilarious (no one got hurt)! What if the dispatcher had told them "Watch out! A bear!" and filmed it. I'm sure that would have made a great video!

Wow, hopping trains when I was a teenager was a lot of fun. We would get on one that was stopped in Pasadena, Ca., or moving slow, and ride where ever it would go, usually to San Berdardino, and then hop one back, hoping that it was going to Pasadena. We did this every 3-4 months. We were 16 early 17 yrs. old. Good times!!!

Bears? These teenagers must know nothing about nature or been so secluded they had no idea of what the world beyond their family is like. They should consider themselves lucky that no harm happened to them. There are still "hoboes" that ride freight trains and criminals that camp near tracks. It's people they ought to fear, not animals.

Agree 100% Kids (even with brilliant parents like you) do this kind of stuff. If you don't have some kind of story like this from your youth, I feel sorry for you. I'm glad they did not try to jump from the moving train. Sure beats stories about kids stealing cars or gang banging

What would have been smart and responsible would have been to not get on the train in the first place.

I find how CRAZY it is that it was OK thing to do 15 years ago, but now it's not. People expect others to be "perfect" and no one is. Kids are going to go do stupid things to have a good time.(didn't sounds like these kids were drunk or messed up on some drug or some criminals) Accidents are going to happen. Everyone has the throw the book at anyone who does any little thing they see is wrong? No wonder society is screwy

They did not get hurt or hurt anyone else. I would say they were smart bored kids looking for adventure.

Too right, they should be charged for all violations connected with the act that they committed.

All to often the railroads are blamed for accidents outside their control and found guilty when in fact they are the innocent party.

it seems to be a culture of blame the innocent and praise the guilty these days
