LawCall - Railroad

Two Indiana women barely escaped with their lives after getting caught on a 500-foot-long, 80-foot-high railway bridge. An engineer with the Indiana Railroad Company thought he had killed them.

One of the women lies down between the rails as the train, whose engineers were trying to stop the locomotive, bears down. The other woman thought for a few minutes about jumping off the bridge, but then decides to lie down with her friend.

The engineer thought he had killed them. Miraculously, they survived.

The rail company has released security video as a cautionary example, and says they want the authorities to pursue criminal trespass charges.

What do you think should happen in such cases?
