A trainload of people attending a murder mystery dinner show near North Fort Myers, florida, got a little closer to the murder and mystery than they bargained for Monday when the train they were traveling onstruck and killed an unidentified man who was lying on the tracks for reasons still unknown.
The dinner train was heading south on the Seminole Gulf Railway toward Fort Myers, Schall said. “There was a male laying on the tracks for whatever reason, and he was run over,” he said.
A deputy on the scene said it appeared the man was alive and perhaps fell asleep on the tracks about a half mile north of Slater Road. “It’s quite a ways to walk off the beaten path,” Schall said.
He said it’s too early to speculate why the man was on the tracks.
