It's getting to where a man can't even commit suicide, anymore...



Lucky man survives after being run over by train

Huntsville, Ala. (AP) --

Talk about being lucky — a north Alabama man is alive after being run over by a train on Thursday afternoon. Huntsville Fire and Rescue officials said a train engineer spotted 61-year-old Arnold Romine lying across railroad ties. Witnesses said the conductor sounded the horn and tried to stop the train.

Firefighters said by the time the coal train was stopped, 8 rail cars had passed over Romine's body.

Miraculously, he suffered what appeared to be minor injuries. He was later treated and released at Huntsville Hospital.

Its unclear why Romine was lying on the tracks.

He shouldn't just died if he's stupid enough to lay down on the tracks, people like that shouldn't reproduce.
 
What kind of jacked up trains are they running in Alabama?
 
What a dumbass. Just go buy some rope or aspirin. Killing yourself isn't that hard.

Lame :down

If you're going to kill yourself, you could at least be creative and/or gruesome about it.
 
I never understood suicide, why don't they just join the army, that way they can atleast do their country a favour and die an honourable death
 
If you want to kill yourself already, you wouldn't make it through boot camp.

I hate people who commit suicide by train, if your gonna do it, don't be selfish and delay everyone else day.
Theres a train station near me that is like a magnet to these ********s, there must be like 10-20 suicides there every year.
 
id like to see what his injuries were, this has been perplexing me for a day or so now... i mean how did he lay on the tracks? surely theres no way he could have only had minor injuries if he laid on the rails right? RIGHT?

Dude. Maybe this guy has already tried that.

You've got to seriously be low on options when "Let's sit in front of a train" becomes the easiest method of suicide.

This guy might just be Brit. I vote we replace our entire overseas military with him.
 
He was probably lengthways on the tracks, and the train has gone right over him.

If he wasn't 61 he probably would have stood while he waited for the train, and this thread wouldn't exist.
 
There's no way that there's enough clearance for the train to pass overhead unless he's been converted into a Paper Mario character.

You're missing the point.

Then just take more pills.
 
I have to say, that's pretty amazing that he lived.

What point? That he survived? Yea that is insane but I was just saying people who try to commit suicide by train are selfish, if your gonna top yourself don't ruin every one elses day but causing delays! :D

But maybe the guy was morbidly obese? All that fat has gotta be useful for something right? :oldrazz:
