The ultimate gamble

A year ago, someone died on these tracks.

The news story about his death was sparse on details. He apparently wasn’t hit by a train, and was walking the tunnel with someone else who was not injured.

Normally I’d assume they were tagging up, but there’s not a whole lot of graffiti down here. I recognized some of the names on the walls, and know they’re all alive…

Thus what this person was doing on the tracks remains a mystery to me. One thing is for sure though: He was willing to take a gamble that few people on this planet have the nerve to pull off.
