Man Hit By Train While Texting, OMG

Here is a grim reminder to all of us that certain situations require our complete attention.

Picture this. A guy texting away with his eyes glued to a cell phone (no, it wasn't an iPhone) heedlessly wanders in the path of an oncoming train. The dude narrowly avoids being struck, turns directions and goes back to texting, then walks straight in front of a second oncoming train. This time he's not so lucky.

Unfortunately this very tragic scene happened earlier today to an unnamed Cincinnati Ohio man. Police have not yet released his identity, or disclosed his injuries, but he at least survived his brush with death and is undergoing medical care.
