Teenager killed attempting to train surf

SILVER SPRING, MD – A teenage girl’s life was abruptly cut short in a tragic incident of train surfing at a Maryland Metro station last Friday, according to local police reports.

Around 10:30 am on Friday, the Metropolitan Transit Police were alerted to a distressing scene at a Silver Spring train station – a deceased girl. Preliminary investigations by the police suggest that the cause of the incident was train surfing, an extremely dangerous and unlawful act of riding on the outside of a moving train.

While the police have yet to release further details about the victim, they have confirmed that their investigation into the incident is ongoing.

There was some initial confusion surrounding the victim’s identity, with the police initially reporting the victim to be male. However, they later rectified this, confirming that the victim was indeed a teenage girl.

In the wake of the incident, train services between the Silver Spring and Forest Glen stations were limited to a single track.

Metro took to social media to express its sorrow over the incident, stating, “We are deeply saddened to learn that a teenage girl lost her life this morning while riding outside of a train car en route to Silver Spring station. Our thoughts are with the victim’s family.”

In their statement, Metro also highlighted the grave risks associated with train surfing, reminding the public of its illegality and potential to cause severe injury or death. They urged the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious or illegal activities to the Metro police promptly.
