Jenna BettiMartinez, CA – I can not imagine what the friends and family of 14-year-old Jenna Betti are going through today after the teen was struck and killed by a train while trying to retrieve a cell phone she’d dropped on the tracks.

According to the girl’s mother, Jenna had been sitting on the tracks with her boyfriend Sunday afternoon when a train approached. Her boyfriend jumped off on one side of the tracks, Jenna on the other.

‘Today my beautiful daughter kissed us goodbye. She was tragically killed today by a train,” Jenna’s mother wrote on Facebook. “She was sitting on the train tracks with her boyfriend… Why they made such a horrible decision we’ll never know.”

Jenna’s second horrible decision was apparently going back to retrieve her cell phone she’d dropped when she jumped off the tracks. “She didn’t judge the approach, and the train creates a vacuum, we were told, and it sucks you in,” her mother posted. Jenna was killed after being struck by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway freight train.

Before anyone points out the Mythbuster’s episode that “debunked” a train causing a vacuum, a fast moving train does create air turbulence that could possibly cause a 100 pound girl to fall or be “pushed” under the wheels. But it’s doubtful this train was going that fast as it had just come out of a turn.

It’s far more likely she simply misjudged the distance of the train and was struck by the train. Regardless of the actual physics involved in Jenna being killed, it was as senseless death. She was an eight grader at Martinez Junior High School, where counselors have been made available to staff and students.
