WILLISTON, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a Florida man died after trying to hop on a moving train ride at an educational farm.
The Ocala Star-Banner reports that 24-year-old Anthony Osburn-Day fell between two train cars Tuesday evening at Kirby Family Farm in Williston. He was pronounced dead at the scene
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Osburn-Day was a volunteer at the nonprofit farm. Troopers say workers were preparing for Halloween-related events, and were having trouble with the engine on the restored locomotive. They were testing it when the accident occurred.
Kirby Family Farm is a non-profit organization and museum that seeks to help at-risk, foster and special needs children. The farm obtained the train this summer to help children learn about transportation and agriculture.
