  1. Rampage_Rick,

    Further reading suggests that:
    - While they were inspecting the track they let 3 trains go by
    - That track is a passenger route (VIA Rail)
    - The maintenance workers had to be transported out by helicopter
    - It took 2 days to reopen the track
    - It’s possible that this could have gone undetected because the S&C cables on the left don’t appear to be damaged.

    The outcome isn’t always the same, even if discovered ahead of time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6x31jK-eNVU

  2. Incredulous,

    This could easily be the English-language translation of the audio in the tornado vid.

    • WordyGrrl,

      No kidding. That Andy Warhol gem about “In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes” isn’t a carved-in-stone guarantee that those 15 minutes will give you eternal life or wealth. Morons are everywhere. Most of them put themselves on video.
