12-Year-Old Killed by Train While Listening to His iPod

12-Year-Old boy Caesar Muloki was killed yesterday by a New Jersey Transit train at 3:15pm. According to the train's engineer, Muloki was listening to his iPod and had his back to the train as he crossed the tracks.

The engineer tried to warn him with the train's horn as he pulled the emergency brake, but the kid either couldn't hear it or ignored the warning. Witnesses say that he was running along the tracks while he suddenly decided to cross them.

Whatever the circumstances, remember that playing music at full volume while going around the city or near a road may not be the best idea. And for the love of everything that is good and furry, don't cross train tracks with or without iPod:

That's never a good idea, no matter what. [WPIXThanks Gitemstevedave!]
