A New York man died while apparently "subway surfing" on top of a train, the New York Daily News reports.
Isabel Rios, 45, was found unconscious and unresponsive atop a No. 6 train Wednesday night.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police told the newspaper Rios suffered fatal head trauma when he slammed into an overhead barrier as the train pulled into a station near Elder Ave. in the Bronx.
The Daily News said Rios was an architect who managed a project to rebuild parts of Staten Island destroyed by hurricane Sandy.

I could say that I feel bad but I'd be lying if I did.

When will he get his Darwin Award? If anyone deserves one, he does.

He was 45 years old and an architect and he was train surfing? Tell me something is not really weird with that picture.

A prerequisite of extreme sports is extreme stupidity. But that's just my opinion.

That would be more of an Engineer's job though wouldn't it?

Lol. Seriously though, one doesn't reach the ripe middle age of 45 and go through the schooling required to become an Architect, never mind an Architect in charge of a large project, while at the same time being a no-brained yahoo. So either the description of this guy is wrong or else it's drugs/severe mental illness.

Well they say when you're on the downhill side things move pretty fast.

It's amazing the stupid games that people make up and call "extreme". Car-surfing, train-surfing, leaping off a skyscraper for a basejump, jumping off a roof to land on a huge silver ball (which didn't end well for the fellow's legs), various stunts on skateboards/bikes that involve railings and high places, etc.

And then there's this guy.



I don't even want to know what the hell he was trying to do.

Well that was the problem then. Not supposed to fly on an overpass, supposed to drive on them.

They couldn't help it. They were singing "I believe I can fly" at the time, and they had to follow through.

Well, yeah, if you haven't been cured of stupidity by age 45 the prognosis ain't too good! -
