Why in the world would anyone over the age of 12 hop onto a coupler. This makes
no sense to me at all. My prayers are with this mans family and this whole
foolish act could of been prevented with a half ounce of common sense.
Well, that was the grossest thing I've read in a while. Did readers, the family
of the victim, or anyone else need the gory specifics of this poor man's demise?
I'm sure that the people on the train, passers-by and the medical
response team would happily give a lot not to have those images burned in their
heads, and now you have shared them with the world.Wouldn't "the
victim was crushed" or better yet, "the victim was killed in an accident" have
been sufficient information for the public?Do you suppose the family
is happy to look in the paper and have to relive the accident, or worse see it
for the first time? Should they have to suffer again by having the accident and
it's specific details up for public debate on these comment boards?I
guess that blood sells, but I say shame on the D-news for putting this kind of
information into the public forum.Please show more consideration for
the families of victims in the future.My condolences and prayers to

We were taking our kids to see the lights at Temple Square and we were on that
train when it happened...very sickening to hear and feel the thump and then the
confusion as suddenly lots of sirens show up and you don't know whats going
on...kids are confused...the poor driver was almost in shock...put a cloud over
the whole night...very sad...very odd to happen at Christmas time
sounds like an attempted suicide.
that the guy knew Trax was FREE. If that is the case - makes it even sadder.
It's what these people do.
what do you mean by "these people"? The man deserves a little respect he's dead.
wow. "these people"? judge much? get a life.
Privacy laws only cover the living. And why does the man "deserve respect"? He
showed none to the people who were on the train, for example.And
anyway, describing specifically what occurred to the man's legs will hopefully
help deter others from trying to do something similar.
