What? I did not see anything in the article about failing to hear a train. They stowed-away on a train.

Did you not read the article? They wanted to get on the train and they manage to do it. The problem was staying on.

What a group of IDIOT. I feel bad for the family who lost thier son though.

I'll revise my previous statement. I didn't know it was a prank. The news I heard was like he had been walking on the tracks. I hate to hear this happened. I feel for the family.

Just reread the article and they mention no "Alchol", which I don't belive.

don't cabs go from 5 points to greek village? or how about the friends they called when they finally got off. the stupidity of this incident makes me not feel too bad about what happened, but just imagine, now his parents have to live with this.

Buck and Ben (AKA "left foot" and "right foot") also travel this route. I am sorry this young man is dead, but my goodness! Guess being silly had dire consequences in this case...

My Friends,

Chases was a Fraternity brother of mine. He has a heart of gold that was larger than most. This was an awful situation with a tragic ending, but please for his family and friends please refrain from posts such as the ones above. This was a young man who had his whole life in front of him. I cannot believe that you would quote Darwin in a time such as this. Who hasn't felt like once in their lives they cheated death. Chase wasn't as lucky as some of us. So I believe that we should be thoughtful about what we post, and keep his family and friends in our thoughts and prayers.
SO SAD

This happened just above my house.

It's a tragedy that could have been completely avoided had they not decided to hop a freight train.....

I could not agree with you more. Some of these comments are from plain sick minded people. If you read some of the other tasteless blogs that WLTX allows these mindless people to blog on you will see that the same people over and over post on every article. Regardless of why this accident happened, this guy is someone's son and people who don't know him should not be making smart remarks about what happened. The shallow people who comment on this site are what gives this state the ignorant reputation that it has.

Yes, alcohol was involved. Say goodbye to your charter SigNu boys. What a stupid way to waste a life and risk their lives. They were all old enough to have better judgment. I doubt this is the 1st time they had done this stunt. I hope it is the last. And to think USC just let off the "Jerk" QB for underage drinking. The USC motto "boys will be boys" until they die...

As I stated previously, the first article that came out,(different from above), did not mention any young people trying to get on a train. All that was stated was that a person was found dead on the tracks. Later, the post was updated to show that the kids were trying to get on/off the train.

I feel badly for the family of the young man. I'm sorry his life ended in this way.
