    ...I have no idea how to react to that. So, they had sex on a train track, and despite the driver's shouts to get off the track, they continued, and then they get killed? I only have one question: WHY? That makes no sense whatsoever.

    How fast was this train going for the driver to be able to shout at them?

    If he was able to shout at them, why didn't he just stop?

    I mean, if he can shout at them, then the train's gotta be moving pretty slow. So if it's a small train, driver could have stopped, long train, not so easy, but still.

    And what did he shout?

    Driver: Hey, can I join in?
    Shagging man: Ew, devil's threesome, no way!
    Shagging woman: No way, you'll be all oily and dirty!
    Driver: Aw, come on! No pun intended.
    Shagging couple: NO!

    No.

    Seriously, trains stop fucking slow. You could see someone coming a mile away and not stop in time. It's not even a joke. The stopping distance for a standard freight train is over a mile, and that's not even something going high-speed. A light rail train like a subway train, even though it's smaller and lighter, still needs about the length of two football fields to stop from the second the engineer sees a problem. When it comes down to it, by the time the driver of a train ever sees something wrong, it's ALWAYS too late to stop. The only thing an engineer can do is hit the brakes, scream at the person in the tracks, and hope they aren't stupid or suicidal and get out of the way.

    See above: it was a goods train, a freight train. Just because you see them a mile away and start shouting or blowing the horn to get out of the way, it doesn't mean you have time to stop.

    As far as this incident goes, I'd say it's definitely a suicide. Idiots.

    EDIT: goofed distance for light rail, they need two, not one

    Pff! That's nothing. Wikipedia has a whole list full of this shit.

    Also, Frank Levick, a footballer for Sheffield United died in a rather gruesome way in 1908:
