Don't skip school. You might get hit by a train.

Train Hits Teen Girls Sunbathing On Tracks
Girls Lose Limbs In Horrific Train Crash
LEBANON, Maine (AP) ― Two teenage girls sunbathing on a railroad trestle lost limbs when a train came upon them unexpectedly in this New Hampshire border town, police said Wednesday.

The girls were lying on beach towels on the trestle over Three Mill Pond when the train rounded a corner and began braking and blasting its horn shortly before 11 a.m., said Lt. Gary Fecteau of the York County Sheriff's Department.

The conductor and engineer say they never saw the girls move, but their injuries suggest they tried to scramble away at the last moment, Fecteau said.

Destiny Phaneuf, 13, of Lebanon, lost her leg just below the knee; Rachel Brown 14, also of Lebanon, lost a foot, Fecteau said. Both were airlifted to Maine Medical Center in Portland.

The girls were cutting class and enjoying the sunny weather when the freight train came upon them, Fecteau said. There's no indication the girls were impaired by alcohol or drugs, or that their hearing was impaired by headphones, he said.

Phaneuf was unconscious when authorities arrived; Brown told police that the pair had fallen asleep while sunbathing, he said.

The train crew called to report the accident when it happened. Police and rescue workers from Milton, N.H., were first on the scene. They turned the investigation over to York County authorities after determining that the incident had happened in Maine.

Well the kid in Florida was in the middle of the bridge with some friends and they just did not make it off the bridge in time. Sad situation. Good kid, good grades, stupid idea.

I can't help but laugh, am I a bad person?
I mean seriously... couldn't they find a better spot to sunbathe?
I guess they missed their lesson to stay off tracks, even you think it's abandoned.

No, not necessarily... You're just a boring and banal person.. for stating the 'obvious' - in an obvious way.



No, do not want..

The real question is whether or not the railroad will be sued successfully by the girls' parents. Sad, but really stupid.

Wow. Even I, the great F4, would not do such a thing when completely wasted on my 4 wine coolers. I'd love to ask them..


WHY CHOOSE ACTIVE TRAIN TRACKS?

I couldn't find the original GI JOE PSA that deals with the dangers of trains. The fridge was the next best thing.
