​A 19-year-old man was hit by a train early Friday near SW Second Street in Fort Lauderdale. The train, running from Miami to Atlanta, continued with a fresh crew through St. Johns County, where a second person stepped in front of it and died.

Contrary to news reports by the St. Augustine Record, NBC Miami, the Associated Press, and others, however, Fort Lauderdale Police say the first victim did not walk in front of the train.

"That's inaccurate," said police spokesman Det. Travis Mandell, who said preliminary evidence suggests that the man, Jonathan Adario of Cooper City, was lying next to the tracks when he was killed.

A spokesman for the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office confirmed that the second person did step in front of the train, but he said he wasn't sure if the second person had been identified yet because he was "in a lot of parts."

If you know anything about the Fort Lauderdale death, call Fort Lauderdale Police Sgt. Steve Novak at 954-828-5556.

He may have not realized, or by the time he saw the light- he couldn't move due to fear. I don't know what happened to make you so dead inside, but take your issues to a therapist because this guy did nothing to deserve what you are putting him through. I don't know how old you are, but I promise the world is not kind to bitter people like you. Sir, you are about as useful as a submarine with a screen door.

People that do things like that are compensating for their own life issues, I'm very sorry for your loss. Please ignore people of this nature, as they are not worth to even speak to you.  This is on par with those kids who were tormenting that elderly woman. I don't even believe in god and I'm a better fucking person than 90% of this country. This world make me really sick too, but honestly this link helped me a bit- its 21 photos that may help restore your opinion of mankind. http://www.buzzfeed.com/expresident/pictures-that-will-restore-your-faith-in-humanity

 I went to high school with Mr. Adario. You need to stop. He was a bright kid, extremely inventive and a great improvisational actor. The last few years of his life have been unbelievably hard and while I may not have been entirely surprised when I learned of his death, it awed, disturbed, and saddened me to no end.

For years he came over to my house everyday. We had a falling out in my senior year and hardly spoke after that. If there was anything to save him that I felt I could have done, I would have, but now that that's all redundant, the last thing the world needs is people like you, that fill it with poorly thought out garbage like this.

He leaves a son behind. I'm ashamed to say I've never met him and likely never will.

Will all of you shut the fuck up. My friend died, and you guys are cracking immature jokes. Seriously, people are trying to grieve, who wants to come to a page explaining what happened and see that kind of stuff on here? How would you feel if that were your friend, your son, your brother, your father. This world makes me sick.

FQS9000 you are a sick person! This isnt a joke, its people lives. the first man DID NOT step in front of the train. He has a family, a son. And lost his life at just 19 years old. How about some respect.

Two Democrats gone bye bye.  You have to be very stupid to walk in front of a train.

I would be ashamed to admit I was a friend of somebody stupid enough to walk in front of a moving train.  I think that the effects of a freight train on human flesh were covered in 1st grade.  Perhaps your buddy dropped out before that was mentioned.

Why, because he didn't stop a half mile long train moving at 40 MPH when an idiot stepped in front of it 100 feet away.  Lots of luck with that scenario if you were in the train cab.

The only persons to blame are the fools who deliberately stepped in front of a moving train.   The engineer is no more to blame than you are when a bug splatters on your windshield.  And the IQ levels are the same.

The train jumped the tracks and hunted him down, did it?  Amazing.  And I thought they ran on rails that were hammered into the ground.  Silly me.

Merely spraying semen around does not entitle anyone to respect.  Frogs do it all the time and you can find them on local menus.

 Considering how the republicans have repeatedly attacked science and education, I think you have the wrong party there skippy.

 Wow. Really?  Common sense points to severe depression /despair/ hopelessness in individuals who die on railroad tracks.  So easy for cold, hateful people to judge others.  Suicide is not an intelligence problem, it indicates emotional illness.  May those of you having some fun at the expense of others who are suffering never have to be visited by this kind of pain or illness.  Actually, seems like some responsible for these harsh posts my have some emotional illness themselves. Look in the mirror.  My heart goes out to the loved ones of those involved.
