Sorry if I offend some by saying this, but these people are dead because they failed to use plain and simple common sense! Some have this mentality that "it wont happen to them!" I cant feel any pity for these indivduals because they performed a dangerous act without any regard for their safety or the safety of others! Its one thing if people jump infront of a train to save a persons life, but when you perform a reckless act jeopardizing your own safety just to make a train then youre just plain stupid!
The worst part is that it will happen again!!! People will continue to lack common sense and ignore the bells and lights, they will get injured or killed by Metra trains.
