Yesterday in Atlanta, a man was STRUCK AND KILLED by a speeding MARTA TRAIN. The accident caused the ENTIRE SYSTEM TO SHUT DOWN during evening rush hour.
Well, we're hearing that there were some SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS at the Lindbergh station in Buckhead, where the man was killed, and that MARTA OFFICIALS are trying to SUPPRESS THOSE CONCERNS.
Well, it's not fair to the people of Atlanta that the MARTA may have safety issues that are not being fixed. So we've decided to show you a PHOTO of the DECEASED MAN. Hopefully it will generate enough attention to PRESSURE THOSE OFFICIALS into making the necessary safety changes to ensure that all MARTA passengers could avoid having a similar accident.
Not even going to look at that pic. I hope his fam sees this and sues. I don't get what kind of ppl take pics on cell phones and pass them around. What is wrong with you? Someone lost their life and you think it's cool to snap a pic? Disgusting.
This is the second death pic I know of MTO posting. Y'all really have no morals. Glorify hoes and mock death. Karma ain't ever too far behind MTO. You do that to someone's family and watch your own suffer. You need to remove this.
***... I ride that train everyday... R.I.P.
that *** fcked up completely

Why did I click on that link. I didn't think that MTO would be disgusting enough to post this horrific event. Shame on you. MTO has no values or morals. I promise this will be my final time visiting this website. You have no respect for human life. Your reasoning for posting this makes no sense.
To the people who always complain about "death" photos being posted:
IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SEE IT THEN DON'T CLICK ON THE LINK!!!!!!
This is REALITY and whether they post the image or not, isn't going to change the fact that this man is already dead!
I don't like my information to be censored, give me the whole truth and i will decide if i want to look or not. You dumbasses who like to live in the dark, pretending that things like this do not happen need to grow up! bad things happen all the time!
MTO ya,ll ain,t shi.t to post this pic smh... I use marta everyday and thank God I didn,t witness this... but rip and bless his family
I've seen worse.
Dude I'm on MARTA every single day... I was just at Lindbergh station yesterday, this is crazy.... MARTA is already a piece of sh*t transit system, now they killing folks... Just yesterday a 110 MARTA bus got into a wreck on Peachtree right in front of Justins (Diddy Restaurant)
I'm bout to be on the train in about 1 hour... Pray for me.
The city of Atlanta needs to take over MARTA... It is truly a failed system, and I hate to say it... But Black folks run MARTA... 99.99% of MARTA employees are black, including the people in Top positions. MARTA is always late (Bus or Train)... They always break down.... The whole 7 o'clock thing at Lindberg station with the South Bound trains stopping at Lindbergh and everyone get off is ***.... Infact, that man might have not died if MARTA wouldn't make people get off the train and pack people like sardines on the Lindbergh platform. The trains and buses are filthy, cause they lack employees.... But yet they charge forks $2.50 a trip?? Where is all that money going? 100,000 people a day use MARTA and you telling me yall cant buy some *** windex,bleach, and air freshener on them stinky *** buses?? Maaan, don't get me started on MARTA... I'm bout to catch this bus at 12:48 (It wont show up until 1:00 probably), thank God I'm buying a car next week....I MARTA is not SMARTA..... R.I.P to this man.

This is NOT appropriate, as this person is somebody's family member! Second, how was he hit like that? Was he down on the tracks walking? Did he slip down there, or was he hanging too closely? I can't see how he was hit like that and wedged between the wall and the train without somehow being too close. Nonetheless, IF MARTA is at fault, I hope the family racks up on punitive damages in the courts to teach them a good lesson! RIP dude.
MTO YOU ARE SICK PEOPLE. I REALLY REALLY DO HOPE THE FAMILY SEE'S THIS ON YOUR SITE AND SUES THE F*CK OUT OF YOU.
Poor guy. May he RIP
MTO is trifflin! That's why u put up pic!.....R.I.P fella!
Seuu he got hit by a train standing up and its not off track? Was he sitting on the ledge dangling his feet?Do the train have sideview windows and he got smacked? Im baffled.
Truly sad,I hope that this wasn't a suicide. Some people intentionally walk on train tracks to get killed.
Im over it, i have a cpl more questions was his shoe untied and long to get caught? Was he high? Was he brohahain to his friends about talking to a girl and she turned into a train with his back turned? Bout to find news article.
IT APPEARS HE MAY HAVE BEEN DARKSKIN
I HAVE 2 TRAIN TICKETS FOR ANY DARKIE INTERESTED
I clicked on the pic just to see what a Marta Train was....
@topic: Very sad, sorry for the family that had to lose him in this manner.
MTO CONSTANTLY PLAYS YOU DUMMIES ON HERE AND YOU BELIEVE EVERYTHING THEY SAY AND POST. THEY'RE SHOWING THIS PIC FOR SHOCK PURPOSES ONLY. IF THEY REALLY WANTED TO HELP THE CAUSE THEY WOULD CONTACT OFFICIALS DIRECTLY AND NOT POST IT FOR PEOPLE TO SEE AND COMMENT ON. THIS IS THE MOST *** SITE ON THE WEB. I HOPE THIS PERSON'S FAMILY SUES FRED & HIS GROUP OF HATING DUMMIES THAT WORK FOR HIM.
Mei, most of us here do KNOW that...
Police reports are public files maybe some one at mto should get it. By boyfriend is a Marta police and was the second ofc to arrive. This young man had been arguing with his boyfriend asked when the next train comes. He was told a few mins an ten he proceeded to get on the phone with his boo and jump down off the platform. He was told to get off the tracks and while still on the phone he tried to jump back up an got half way up when he was struck by the train. Sad but true they had his boyfriend come out an identify the body before he was take. By the em's office.
Marta is something like Bart here in the Bay Area, its mostly ran through the underground tunnels. How do these people manage to get on the tracks is my question. It clearly warns of high voltage, yet these idiots still try and sneak across them...SMDH!
MTO is due for a lawsuit. i cant wait for the day i see that MTO is being sued by a grieving family while reading a REAL reliable media outlet.
why was he on the tracks? poor guy. i bet ppl at that train station looking on are still shocked from witnessing something as such.
MTO approve my avitar...come on fred!!!!!!
Wtf was he doing so close to it? It ain't that hard to notice that muhfuqqa had no intention to stop.
R.I.P. God be with his family.
Mizzoffizer, you must really have no life to sit there and construct a whole story like that.
This is messed up, I'm on the MARTA train right now....
WELL THESE PEOPLE ARENT THE SMARTEST,LETS BE HONEST HERE.HE PROBABLY WAS ARGUING WITH ONE OF HIS DRUG DEALER,GANG BANGER FRIENDS,AND THEY PUSHED HIM INTO THE TRAIN.
Wow just wow!
@Bobby_Brown I agree with you 100% about MARTA! I was just riding the train yesterday evening and I didn't know that someone got hit by a train! And I bet you MARTA going up by the end of the year beause of something like this. We gonna end up paying $3.00 per trip....smdh
@juicyj3001 - congrats to you that you're one of the VERY few
@ Ross, I'm glad she did explain because I'm baffled as to how he even got down there.
not shocking. i've seen worse. and like most of the stories (if not all) on mto this just a bad fake. the blood distro is so unrealistic. somebody explain how that happened or ask the csi why that is. :D
***, that was a tight squeeze. This is a good one for ogre dot com and rotten dot com and death and dementia dot com.
R.I.P blessings to him and his fam. I wonder why ppl have to die so tragically? in car crashes, plane crashes, bus and train crashes.... why??????? imagine the pain they experienced.... truly sad :( I pray all of my family and the rest of the world HEALTH, HAPPINESS AND LOVE & hopefully I live a loooong life and die in a peaceful way. VISIT--------------> KIMMYLIVESON.WORDPRESS . COM
smh MTO think they know every *** thing. His death had nothing to do with safety considerations as to why he was down there. He dropped his *** phone and jumped down there to get it, and didn't get up fast enough to avoid being hit by the train. SMH *** the hell up MTO. I live in Atlanta and I know FIRST HAND that safety concerns at LINDBERGH was not the case. Smh I hate MTO I really do....
King Beef Atl
It seems like this happen like every 5 years.....R.I.P
@ Bobby_Brown...MARTA has more money than people think they do. Where does it go? To attorneys who spend their time denying MARTA has never had any wrongdoing while professing that they are not responsible for anything. A MARTA bus can be drag racing and run 50 people over on camera - and they will still say that there was no wrong doing on the part of the driver. They'll use the camera evidence to blame the 50 people who 'made no precautionary actions to move' before they admit to anything. Hell, I don't ride MARTA (never did and never will... it's not even available where I live, thank gawd) but they are pretty notorious for downplaying any fault......................however, why in hell was the guy so close to the platform. Who doesn't know not to be near or on the tracks when active trains are on them? I mean, really who doesn't know that?
Why would you show that MTO? What if his family was reading this!
@ lola uk - Im siding with you. ppl always b.itchn *** gripin about what mto posts yet u fckn BIMBO'S click on the links ...THERE IS A REASON FOR HEADLINES and if you dimwits were smart ud knw that they act as forewarners ...to click or not to click - its that d.amn simple. And THESE THINGS HAPPEN. quit swooning and passing out over tragic things ...LIFE isnt rainbows nd lollipops -- life actually has a *gasp* darkside
s/o to all the atl'ers who complain about MARTA but still give MARTA their hard earned money. the way to change public injustice would maybe ...hmm be to BOYCOTT! thats right folks BOYCOTT Marta, ur voice will be heard.
Live peacefully in the sky to the victim ...
STAY OFF THE FCKING TRACK, IDIOTS...
Where mah doorag at?
*** thats sad
Follow Me On Twitter @JovanGields
No MTO, its called standing too close to the edge of the platform. If you've noticed in cities like Chicago and New York, they have yellow caution lines to keep you at a safe distance..
yall are wrong to post that pic on here
Let's pick sense out of nonsense. Clearly this person was NOT accidentially run over by now train. Look at the position of his body. Why is it FACING the direction of the platform. How can u be runn over by a train if your standing on the *** platform? Obiviously by his body position he was on the tracks an tried to make it back on the platform an then was hit. Stop making it seem like this man was hit on purpose an the train company is to blame. They may need safety percautions but as a sensible human you should know to say away from the edge or be on the tracks!
MTO this is so sick why in the hell would u post a death photo. I didn't even look because I knew the man who died wouldn't want this. May this man R.I.P in heaven.Where in heaven you don't see sick *** like this.
UUUUH I RESIDE IN ATL AND ALTHOUGH I HAVEN'T RODE IN A YEAR OR TWO...HE HAD TO HAVE BEEN DOING SOMETHING..HE'S ACTUALLY UNDER THE DARN TRAIN...WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MINDS EVEN GOES THAT CLOSE TO THE TRACKS. THERE IS MORE THAN 12 FEET OF PLATFORM TO THE EDGE. DID HE TRY CROSSING FROM NORTH BOUND TO SOUTH BOUND AND THEN GOT HIT...
Who would take a picture like this and post it on a blog, some people are so vile.
pyramids everywhere today... HERE!... and all over beyonce's pants... smh
Wow im so sorry for him and his family! May God be with his fam!
Its so sad that this happened to this man but the white tiles on the floor indicate not to cross until the train doors open. I dont ride MARTA often but they say it over the loud speaker and there are signs look for them next time u ride.
I think as someone else stated, that he dropped his phone and thought that he could quickly get it and get back on the platform. I saw him on the Atlanta news. He was athletic. But, not quick enough to carry out this ill-conceived plan. His roommate said on the news that this young man had just moved to Atlanta from NY. He was seeking to be an actor. He was going to move to LA to pursue his acting career. May his soul rest in peace.
Also, let his death be a lesson to anyone who would value anything on the tracks over your own life.
Your Lesson of the Day:
YOU CAN ALWAYS BUY ANOTHER ONE!
And, that is all.
wow thats sad and scary! God bless him and have mercy upon his soul. I feel sorry for the guy who had to identif him and i feel sorry for his family...mto yall aint right for posting this :-(
Omg I hope that's not the reason this young man lost his life over a cell phone??? And him being from NY he should have known better if he would not have gotten run over, he could have gotten electrocuted
Just be real about it, MTO. You only posted this picture to get clicks. There is no way that you are concerned about ANYTHING besides your internet traffic. Spare me the false concern about MARTA...you liars. I hope this man's family finds out about this pictures and sues your azzes.
@theCchild40 This really happened. It's sad however it happened but for once MTO is telling the truth. And no one can't be mad about MTO posting this story. This, in fact, is real news and isn't "real" news what we wanted in the first place!
That's just sad......... My thoughts and prayers go out to his family..... @mikelock59
FIRST OFF MY PRAYERS TO THE YOUNG MAN FAMILY, BUT WHAT YALL FAIL TO REALIZE THAT IS A TRAIN AND ONCE IN MOTION ITS HARD TO SLOW OR STOP THEM TRAINS AND IF THERE WERE INDEED PPL AROUND HINT THE ONE TAKING THEM PICTURES WHY IN THE HELL DIDN'T YALL TRY TO HELP HIM OFF THE TRACK IN WHICH HE TRIED TO RETRIEVE HIS PHONE FROM AN HIGH VOLTAGE TRACK AND HE OBVIOUSLY GOT TRAP AND IT WAS TO LATE MARTA HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT PPL ALWAYS TRY TO MAKE SOME OUT OF NOTHING TRYING TO GET RICH QUICK GETTING OLD
