Sudden Deaf: Earbuds


JOPPA, Md. (WJZ) — An Aberdeen man was hit and killed by a train he never heard coming. That’s because police say the man was wearing earbuds at the time and never heard the conductor sound the horn. He’s the latest pedestrian to be killed because he wasn’t tuned into his surroundings. Read the rest here.


  1. I wore earbuds for years… I just didn’t hang out on railroad tracks!!
    I’m indeed sorry he died so tragically!

  2. I often warn people about that–if you’re going to be near public streets, lose the headphones. Sad that I’ve got (more) evidence of why this is important.
