Normally, I use "Tuesday Video" posts to share some really cheesy nugget from the transit museum archives circa the mid-eighties, or some stupid video.
This week's post is a bit different. It's a video produced by a Boston University student whose father works for the MBTA up in Massachusetts and how fatalities on the job affect him, and his family. It's on the long side (16 minutes, give or take) however, it gives perspective about how the 'second victim' of hits is left to deal with the aftermath of people throwing themselves in front of trains. I think it's very well done. It won a whole ton of awards as well, a list of which can be found on this page. (Also, use that link to view the video if the embed isn't working for you.)
This video also doesn't do a single thing to change my view that 99.9% of the time when someone is hit by a train I honestly don't
feel bad for them, it's the crew that has to live with the atrocity that I feel for.
