    This story is truly heartbreaking! I am sure this wonderful little boy is now a saint in heaven. My prayers are also with the young girl who was attacked. My only question is why these young children were playing unsupervised by railroad tracks?

      You took the words right out of my mouth. So very heartbreaking. That poor little girl will have to live with not one, but two of the most traumatic things a person can experience. And she had to suffer both at such a young, precious age all because there was no adult supervision. Truly terrible.
