"Breaks"?? What?

The Sentinel can't even spell "brakes" correctly? Wow.

Has the editor died and nobody noticed?

them man should not have been laying on the tracks any way, he was probably drunk and fell asleep. The train horn should have woke him up, they are loud enough to hear even miles away. The train conductor saw the man and tried to warn him with the train horn, and by then it was to late for him to stop. You have to stop the train in advance, they really take a lot of distance and space to stop. They are heavy, metal and steel equipment.
