Last week on Tuesday, I was in Fort Lauderdale in Riverfront, and about 2am they closed off the tracks that people walk through from the clubs because apperantly some pedistrain had gotten hit by the train.

Now I don't know if it was fatal, but I believe if a freight train hits you, you will mostly die. And I didn't hear anything about it, but I was curious to what had happened.

I am sure some drunk teen was trying to be cool, and did something stupid.
Poor soul, we have all done stupid things, but he paid for it with his life, or is hopefully recovering.

You can't blame the train, you hit the train, the train did not hit you.

It is not the first time I have seen drunk people do fatally stupid things, especially in Fort Lauderdale, that is assuming he was drunk..

I have searched all over the internet, but as most cases, they are not posted in online newspapers or anywhere.

Can anyone help find an article.

This happened in the tracks that seperate the two bar scenes in Riverfront, like right behind Art Bar on the way to the Irish place....
I'd like to say it was on March 15-technically 16 am time 2011

Spring Breaker struck by train in downtown Lauderdale remains hospitalized - Sun Sentinel

With all due respect, it took like 10 seconds to find maybe a dozen articles
