The headline should read "Stupid selfish idiot disrupts train service for hundreds of people."

Its very sad when someone feels so horrible that they decide to take their own life. Whats even more sad is selfish people like the one who posted below who are more upset about their inconvienience than the fact that someone took their own life because they couldn't stand their chemotheraphy for their cancer anymore as this poor woman could not. I dont know how people can look at themselves in the mirror and not be disgusted with their own selfishness.

i don't see anywhere where it says that cancer and chemotherapy were involved.

However, as someone who has a close family member who has been treated for cancer for the past THREE YEARS and is still treating, I know that my relative would never commit suicide because he wants to beat the damned thing.

Suicide is just plain selfish and Suicide that disrupts absolute strangers is selfish to the Nth degree.

Excuse me, but my mother died of cancer and suffered greatly with chemo and the pain. Yes, it is a horrible disease, however, she would NEVER be so selfish as to put her family through the ordeal of living with her suicide. She was going to be taken from us soon enough and we would (and still are) suffering. Why add more agony to that? Not to mention the fact that the Bethpage woman also involved a train engineer in her selfish act to commit suicide. He's an innocent victim who now has to live the fact that he killed someone. She should NOT have involved anyone but herself. There were other ways if she was so intent on it. But no, she was SELFISH and involved innocent people. My sympathies absolutely go out to the family, but as for her..... sorry, I have no sympathy for selfishness.

No, it should read, "Beautiful, Loving, Tortured girl who didn't deserve any of this is tragically killed." You didn't know her so don't talk. You are the self idiot. She was my little sister and I love her.

I just realized that headline was for someone else who recently suffered the same fate as my little sister, but either way, don't judge. Cherilyn was all that I said and you don't know who the other woman was either. I'm sure she was a beautiful, loving woman as well. You don't know any better.

ok... listen everyone on this everyone needs to open up their minds.. what she did wasnt supposed to be selfish. People don't always make the right decision and if you are an adult putting this stuff about how u dont feel sorry for her don't ok. she doesn't need you to sorry for her. But now imagine this if your cousin or child or w.e. were to kill themselves would love people to be complaining about how they were delayed when a teenage was killed you think about that. Now just imagine her family is upset and mad. Dont go talking about how you were late and how she is stupid you are the retarted one and obnoxious for having the nerve of saying this stuff when shes not here anymore SHUTUP!!!

I don't think suicide is something selfish. Sometimes people are so far gone that they are beyond help. They're in so much pain and agony. Sure you medicate the crap out of them, but is that really fair to them?

I was sitting behind the conductor of the train this morning. The conductor blew the horn and applied the brakes. The conductor said something. He was very professional and reported the accident to the tower. He did not panic and stayed calm.
I feel sorry for the lady.
We lost 30 minutes waiting to find out if there was power on the third rail. no one had a tester for the third rail to see if the electricity was on. Police,ems,firemen where there with all kinds of equipment very fast.

Thank you Nello

Ya know, my heart goes out to all these people's family's....... But fuc the weak who think suicide is the only alternative. If your going to kill yourself, tape a doner card to your chest a blow your brains out in a hospital er. this shit on the tracks has to stop. 1) it's an inconvience to everyone involved
2) your not dead when you hit the tracks....... Unless its third rail time......Your dead when the poor conducter can't stop the train. Now that's fucd up and selfish because your forcing him to live knowing he killed someone. 3) there's alot of people out there who are so ILL they'd give anything to be able to live. I know a man..... A good man, with a daughter who was born with congenital heart failure. She wasn't supposed to live past 16. 10 heart surgeries in 27 years....... That's rough..... How bout the perfectly functioning heart that was allowed to selfishly stop beating that someone else could have used..... So like I say people, if your gonna do it, do it solo, with help from no one, and for the help of others be an organ doner first, then do it at a hospital.
