Would you die for the one you LOVE? Teen boy, 16, dies trying to save girlfriend from oncoming Train

Witnesses of a train collision that killed a teenage boy and left his girlfriend in critical condition said the boy saved the girl from certain death by pushing her away from the tracks.

Mickayla Friend, 16, is in critical condition after the accident, which happened Friday around 7 p.m. when she and her boyfriend, Mateus Moore, were walking along railroad tracks in Marysville, (California).

They were going to pick up some snacks for a school dance when a train struck the 16-year-old Moore, killing him at the scene.

Eric Stark, an 11-year-old who was at the nearby Little League field when the impact occurred, said Moore pushed Friend out of the way at the last second.

“I heard the train, and it was honking a lot, and it didn’t stop honking”. Right when they turned around, it was too late, and then the guy, he pushed the girl out of the way, but she still got hit by the train. And it sucked him in sort of and ran him over.”

Stark’s father, Shawn Stark, also saw the incident and believes that Moore’s actions saved the girl. “They would have both been underneath that train if he didn’t push her out of the way at the last second.

The girl’s family says Moore was “amazing.”

Officials said the train’s emergency brake system was initiated, but the train was unable to stop in time. Officials also said there was no evidence that either teen was intoxicated or wearing headphones.
