Amtrak train victimizes idiot brothers
How's this for ironic hilarity?
A dumb Oregon teenager and his friends were playing chicken with an Amtrak train and he got hit and killed. Of course his family decided to memorialize him with a track-side cross display, because nothing demonstrates loss like a cheap cross and plastic flowers at the site of a person's death where nobody will see it.
During the memorial service, three teens, including the victim's brother, found themselves on the opposite side of the tracks as another Amtrak train arrived, so they jumped across just as the train passed. As you might have guessed already, the brother got hit and killed too.
I'm guessing these two kids would have managed to kill themselves in some other stupid way had they not done it with a train.But it's not a total loss for the family because now they don't have to erect a track-side memorial for the second kid, there's already one.
