A truly tragic story with a father(train track operator) having to face a really tough decision between a train about full of people who don't
appreciate life about to collide with a bridge or saving his son who he loves more than anything in the world.
Truly sad video, must watch the whole thing
What are your thoughts ATS what would you do if you were in his shoes?
If someone would embedded the video I'd really appreciate it

This has got to be one of the best videos I've ever seen on YouTube in a long time. Great thread OP. S&F for this and I don't give those out like
other ppl. As for my choice.... I really can't say if i would do the same thing. It's hard to say without being in this position. Again great thread.

How was it that this particular train was full of specifically and only "Angry... Selfish... and Addicted" people? That's a bit over the
top. Why couldn't it have been a typical cross-section of normal, ordinary people? Would that have made the decision any harder--or any easier?
Oh. I see. It's a religious thing. God gave his only-begotten for sinners--angry, selfish, and addicted sinners. Mm-hmm. OK.
Contrived. Pious. Corny. I think I'll stop there....
Being a Father I can see the pain in the decision. I would have pulled the lever and killed 2 rather than the many. As the Father, I would have had no
knowledge of who was on the train, so what type of people on the train would be inconsequential.
