I'm not against a person ending his/her life if that is
what they think is the best for themselves. I can see
circumstances where it might seem to be a reasonable
action but I do not see why they feel a need to inconvenience
others. Are they Mad at society or just wanting attention?
I would think just quietly ending it would be better, why must
They hurt others in the process ?

Did somebody say it was a suicide? That would be tragic, but won't you feel stupid if it was nothing more than a tragic accident?

srini: c'mon. It's a tragedy, but take off the glasses, most of the rail deaths are suicides.
"In 2011, 16 people were killed on Caltrain tracks. 13 of them were suicides."
"Every year, an average of 12 people die on Caltrain tracks, and most are suicides. This is a small percentage of suicide deaths each year only about one percent of suicides in the U.S. are by train. ... And it's not just on Caltrain; in 2011, 702 people died on train tracks nationwide."
