Suicide contagion?

Do you know that there was a rail fatality on Memorial Day in Sunnyvale? An elderly man intent on committing suicide near the Home Depot parking lot in Sunnyvale, walked onto the Caltrain tracks and was struck by a northbound train? He was transported to Stanford Hospital where he died of a head injury.

How come Caltrain did not notify the press of this incident. Are they trying to hide something? Is Christine Dunn trying to hide something? What goes on at Caltrain...

Unless you're young, no one cares if you commit suicide. Which is probably why more people don't do it.
