THE LAST KISS~

THE LAST KISS~
THE LAST KISS
HELLO MY DEAR FRIENDS & FOLLOWERS I FOUND A TOUCHING URBAN LEGEND WITH A COUPLE OTHER S THAT ARE SIMPLER TO IT TOO. IT WAS BACK IN THE EARLY 70's WHEN AN WORKER ON THE SANTA FE RAILROAD WAS TOLD THE STORY IN LA. 
THE STORY STARTS WITH TWO FREIGHT TRAIN CARS, CALLED 'COUPLED-UP' WHICH MEANS BEING CAUGHT BETWEEN THE COUPLERS OF TWO FREIGHT CAR AS THEY CAME TOGETHER. 
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED~
SUPPOSEDLY A YOUNG BRAKEMAN ON HIS NIGHT-SHIFT HAD LIVED FOR A TIME AFTER A HUGE FREIGHT TRAIN ACCIDENT, SO HIS SUPERVISOR CALLED HIS YOUNG WIFE SO THAT THEY COULD SEE EACH OTHER ONE LAST TIME. WHEN SHE CAME THEY WERE ABLE TO KISS ONE LAST TIME, AS HE STOOD CRUSHED BETWEEN THE TWO FREIGHT TRAIN CARS. AFTER THE COUPLE HAD THEIR LAST MOMENTS TOGETHER TO SAY GOODBYE, THE TRAIN CREW WAS ABOUT TO PULL THE TWO FREIGHT TRAINS CARS APART. HOWEVER, THE YOUNG MAN THAT WAS TRAPPED BETWEEN THE FREIGHT CARS, SHOUTED OUT FOR ONE MORE REQUEST BEFORE HE KNEW HE WOULD DIED THE MOMENT THE TRAINS WERE MOVED FROM EITHER SIDE OF HIM. HIS REQUEST WAS AN LANTERN AND HE HIMSELF GAVE THE SIGNAL WITH THE LANTERN TO THE LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEER TO REVERSE THE TRAINS [NOTE I DON'T KNOW IF HIS WIFE WAS STILL THERE TO WATCH]. AS SOON AS THE FREIGHT CARS SEPARATED, THE YOUNG MAN TOPPLED OVER AND DIED INSTANTLY. ITS BEEN SAID THAT, ALTHOUGH HE HAD CRUSHED HIS VITAL ORGANS THEY HELD HIM TOGETHER LONG ENOUGH FOR HIM TO SAY GOODBYE TO HIS WIFE AND SEE HER ONE LAST TIME. AS FOR THE LANTERN AND WANTING TO GIVE THE FINAL SIGNAL TO THE LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEER, TO MOVE IN REVERSE, ENDING HIS LIFE THIS WAS HIS WAY TO SHOW HOW TOUGH RAILROAD MEN ARE AND HOW THEY ENDURED. SOME SAY ITS FICTION BUT MANY TRULY BELIEVE THAT IT WAS FACT.
HERE ARE A FEW OTHER STORY'S ABOUT THE AMERICAN
RAILROADERS~
SOME OF THE STORIES WERE TOLD BY AN OLD RETIRED RAILROAD WORKER IN THE LATE 1990'S. OTHERS WERE SET ON DIFFERENT LINES OF THE RAILROADERS IN MANY OTHER STATES. IN SOME VERSIONS OF THE 'THE LAST KISS' IT WAS TOLD IN MILITARY SERVICES, USUALLY INVOLVING ACCIDENTS WITH HEAVY VEHICLES SUCH AS AN ARMORED PERSONNEL. THIS COULD BE A HEAVY VEHICLE OVERTURNED ON A SOLDIER. THE SOLDIER STAYS ALIVE UNTIL THEY TURN THE VEHICLE BACK OVER.  HOWEVER, THEY USUALLY HAVE ONE LAST REQUEST TOO! 
THIS COULD BE A NUMBER OF THINGS. THERE WAS ONE STORY IN THE MID-80's DURING DESERT-STORM. A GENERAL HAD A FIELD TELEPHONE PATCHED TO THE CIVILIAN TELEPHONE SYSTEM SO A SOLDIER COULD SPEAK TO HIS WIFE BACK IN THE STATES ONE LAST TIME.
LASTLY, IN SEPTEMBER OF 1982 IN NEW YORK CITY A POLICE OFFICER GIVES A FIRST-HAND OF AN ACTUAL 'LAST KISS' ACCIDENT. 
THE STORY~
THE POLICE OFFICER RESPONDED TO AN ACCIDENT AT THE GRAND ARMY PLAZA SUBWAY STATION IN PARK SLOPE BROOKLYN. THERE WAS AN MAN SQUEEZED FROM THE WAIST DOWN IN A TWO-INCH SPACE BETWEEN A TRAIN CAR AND THE PLATFORM.  WHILE WAITING FOR THE EQUIPMENT TO EXTRICATE HIM,THE POLICE OFFICER RAN TO A TELEPHONE LINE TO THE VICTIM WHO WAS AN VIETNAM VETERAN. SO HE COULD TALK TO HIS WIFE OE LAST TIME.
THE VIETNAM VETERAN TOLD HIS WIFE THAT HE LOVED HER VERY MUCH, BUT DIDN'T REVEAL HIS PREDICAMENT AND ENDED THE CONVERSATION WITH A KISSING SOUND INTO THE PHONE. THEN HE SMOKED ONE LAST CIGARETTE. SECONDS AFTER THE TRAIN CAR WAS MOVED AND THE MAN DIED. ANOTHER POLICEMAN HELD A BODY BAG BELOW HIM TO CATCH THE LOWER HALF OF THE MAN'S BODY AS HE FELL. 
WELL THAT WAS THE STORY OF 'THE LAST KISS' I HOPE YOU FOUND IT 
INTERESTING AS I. I FOUND IT TO BE AMAZING HOW THE HUMAN BODY WORKS
AND HOW PEOPLE ARE SO WELLING TO TAKE THE EXTRA MILE
TO HELP SOMEONE LAST MOMENTS  TO BE THAT 
EXTRA SPECIAL. IT GIVES HOPE TO THE HUMAN RACE.
I PRAY THAT YOU ALL HAD A WONDERFUL DAY
I LOVE YOU ALL MY DEAREST FRIENDS & FOLLOWERS
YOUR WENDY
