At least he died doing what he loved.
Reminds me of a gif I've seen where a kid is posing for a selfie right next to train tracks and the train conductor kicks him in the head
I believe the same thing happened to Greg Plitt.
We have an Otherground blog?
Check this out. More unbelievable, IMO.
Damn it, can't post a blue link for some reason right now.
StevetheWeasel - Trains hate him.
Risk your life for a selfie? Just so you can get people to 'like' it, say 'awesome' and such. Just silly.
Sad for the family and friends
Just for a moment he lost his train of thought.
He is on-track to reach his training goals
StevetheWeasel - Trains hate him.Yup. That's a VU.
Trust -Oh holy fuck that's funny
Ridgeback -I think you are on to something.
I have a theory that the digital generation can't distinguish real danger from digital dangers because they spent so much time in the virtual world the real world doesn't signal real threats in their brains like it should. Add the youthful feeling of immortality and you get what you might call "easily preventable catastrophic deaths."
Trust -This is a thing if beauty. Well done!
The whole 'selfie' obsession is not only incredibly vain but also extremely sad.
His picture was uploaded to the cloud
i hope he had a chance to upload it to instagram first
