Easy. His head is simply one solid piece of bone with perhaps a walnut-sized brain buried deep inside.

ACRE did not put this story out. This came from NY Newsday.

Based on the flimsy facts in the article, I would guess the kid is either off his rocker or has one of those inner-ear problems that causes you to lose balance...

The story may be old, but what do you bet the guy's noggin still hurts?

The question at this point in time is this; Is the guy suing the railroad for his own negligence, or is he OK? Chances are instead of being clumsy, the poor fellow has a neurological problem. The only people I've ever seen get clipped by a train or fall off a platform were drunks, junkies and epileptics having a seizure. Talk about seeing something that makes your heart stop, this guy is lucky to be alive.

I hope he feels better, and has figured out what the yellow line is for.
