These accidents are 100% preventable. Stay off the tracks. They are posted "no trespassing" for a very good reason. I'm surprised all the people who pose for senior pics and what not haven't been hit.

He was a child! What kind of disrespectful person are you? Feel some remorse for his poor family. No child deserves to die.

We as parents should ALWAYS contiue to remind our kids of safety in all they do, and to always b aware of your surroundings and what dangers can present themselves out of nowhere. But no one is perfect and accidents DO happen. For the smart one being inconsiderate, i bet if it was your chil who died, that would b the last thing on your mind right now. This family is going through hell, and all u can give is disrespect? We will b praying for the family and friends, and know MOST of your community are grieving with you. ANY loss of a child, for any reason is heartbreaking. May god b with you all.

If he hadn't been wearing the headphones and listening to (c)rap 'music' at a high volume he would still be alive! Only a total moron walks on railroad tracks. Look for a frivolous lawsuit soon! Hopefully the railroad will refuse to settle and fight it all the way! They are not responsible for people's stupidity!
