What did he damage?
Not if the door was open.
Be fair, he was just a kid - kids are stupid.
ran back up the track to the dying dickhead.
Surprised this hasn't been moderated.
Did he upset your train set?
A TEENAGER has died in front of his younger brother after leaning out of a moving train in Melbourne’s southeast.
There was a piece in the Herald-Sun yesterday about the 17-year old in question and how his death had impacted on his family etc. They were saying that he was an avid film-maker.
This is an extremely difficult time for them I'm sure but the fact is that you shouldn't be accessing a driver's cabin and/or hanging out a door, not to make a film - not for any reason. I will be interested to see the Coroner's investigation and if it will uncover how they got into the driver's cab; given that they've just gone through a program to fortify the doors it's disappointing to see that determined teens can still access it somehow.
You can rest assured that the coroner will come up with something (anything) that will mitigate the kid's stupidity and blame someone else.
I may have mentioned this before but I have friends who have had been called in a professional capacity to appear at Coroner's inquests and it's completely ridiculous the lengths that they go to exonerate people who (in the old days) would have simply been categorised 'death by mis-adventure'. I don't know why, maybe it's just a sign of the times.
"given that they've just gone through a program to fortify the doors"
Thanks for that. I needed a good laugh!
