I am really curious about the story behind this.

Well, he apparently DID play in traffic...

Which, no matter how strong and burly you are, you know....

Knowing nothing about the circumstances, I find it hard to believe that a fully functioning adult can be accidentally hit by a train.


#10

That's why it's called an accident.


#11

It's a pretty easy accident to avoid...

It is attached to a track, it's huge and it's loud as fuck.

RIP

37...only 37


#14

He was filming some kind of commercial or promo video for some protein powder. Supposedly he was trying to film himself really close to the train/tracks and stumbled over and hit by the train.

Really tragic even if it was a bit of a reckless accident either way..

RIP

if Steve Irwin can get killed by a stingray, I don't have a hard time believing that someone can get hit by a train


#16

Sorry, but if that is in fact what happened then that dude was a moron.


#17

He was a rather hardcore dude. Took life by the balls, was a former Army Ranger, and had previously taped his training instruction videos down by the train rails.


#18

These types die young pretty often.


#19

He was apparently filming illegally without the proper permits. They do that in part to safeguard against shit like this. Sorry for his family, but tripping and being smashed by a train while taking a glorified selfie isn't hardcore. It's Darwinism.

Greg Plitt probably inspired more people to lift than any pro-bb in recent years.

Accidents happen when you do dangerous things.
