I was on the way to my work and was next to him. Only both of us and two more people far away. He look normal, and was talking in his phone. Don’t know what type of conversation because I had earphones. It took me by surprise, he just jump to the middle, then put his head in the rail. Everything happened in three seconds, so fast. It didn’t even give me time to tell him something. The scary part is he look calm. I hope he found his peace.

You’re lying. You’re just looking for attention. You were in bed when that poor fellow got splattered under a million pounds of steel.

For some reasons my reply to you haven’t being posted. Lets try again..

So you are using an Hispanic term (El loco), I wonder why, I bet you are not even Hispanic. The good thing is, possibly you are self aware that you behavior is kind of sick, “loco” means “crazy”.

I guess you are a Republican too, am I wrong? Why you guys are full of hate? I hope you don’t have multiple accounts because my man, that’s would be very sick. I refuse to believe there’s 24 people like you in this “community”.

Reading these comments i now realize how selfish you all are. A man was suffering and decided to end his life, change the life of the crew operating the train and all you can think of is people getting to work on time. No wonder our world is so messed up today…

Where is TA on this issue?
NO MORE TRAINS!! How many more people have to die before we stop this madness? Who’s with me on this? #trainlesscity #nomoretrains #safetyforall


how inconsiderate of him, just think of all the people on the train trying to get to work.

Just do it in private, when people make up their minds nothing can stop them. Its really not worth the time effort and money invested in them…yeah i know if it saves one life.


I’m sure there were quite a few people trying to get to work during the weekend on a Main St. bound 7 train – Not


who’s going to work at 6am Sunday morning you dope? He was considerate to the end. He could have done it Monday morning at 8am. You are a true idiot.
