Zacharia Smith an 18 year old from Cincinnati Ohio was recently hit by a train while text messaging. Fortunately Smith survived the incident and hopefully a lesson will be learned by him and others. Smith was hit by a train while texting after he walked in front of a train, he had been waiting while a train was passing by and when the train ended he never looked to see if another happened to be coming. A second train that was coming from the opposite direction hit him throwing him 50 feet and knocked him unconscious.
Normally these stories texting related stories have horror stories about driving, this time was simply walking and luckily he survived. This just goes to show that we need to pay attention to what we are doing. I am all about multi-tasking but sometimes we need to pay attention to the task at hand.
