He Got Run Over By a Train

It's been a slow weekend for bizarre. Since my birthday was November 16, I would have thought there would be more stuff going on. I did find one bizarre tale about the fattest town in America, Huntington, West Virginia, but I couldn't copy it for some reason.

So I had to settle for some dude who got run over by a train. What puzzled me was the final sentence. I wonder why someone didn't ask him. The only thing that occurred to me is he was taking a nap.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala.(AP) A north Alabama man is alive after being run over by a train on Thursday afternoon. Huntsville Fire and Rescue officials said a train engineer spotted 61-year-old Arnold Romine lying across railroad ties. Witnesses said the conductor sounded the horn and tried to stop the train.

Firefighters said by the time the coal train was stopped, 8 rail cars had passed over Romine's body.

Miraculously, he suffered what appeared to be only minor injuries. He was later treated and released at Huntsville Hospital.

Its unclear why Romine was lying on the tracks.
