Rumor has it that a 21 year old was “thrown from a train” up in Washington Heights, and killed. Details are very hard to come by because police are not being very forthcoming at this time. Also, details are hard to get late at night when the majority of the press are home in bed.
The kid was on (literally) a downtown C train. Witnesses say that he may have been train surfing.
What the hell is train surfing? It’s riding on the top of the subway cars like an old western movie. Possibly one of the dumbest ideas ever.
The “victim” was on top of the train, according to witness reports, when the train went under an overpass. You can fill in the blanks from there. I will insert the sound effect: SPLAT!
I know, I know. I’m going to get chewed apart in the comments for being insensitive. I don’t care. Folks, this is Darwinism at its best. As a species, our future is a little better of than it was yesterday.
If it turns out that the kid accidentally fell off an overpass, onto the top of the train, and then surfed it downtown, I will retract my statement.
All the details are/were unconfirmed at the time this was posted. However, my secret sources say this is pretty much a closed case.
