ATLANTA — A personal trainer and YouTube personality was hit and killed by a freight train Tuesday while filming one of his popular videos.
The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office has identified the victim as 30-year-old Travis Williams.
Williams, who had changed his name to Achilles Williams, was a personal trainer who often videotaped outdoor workouts for his YouTube channel. Investigators say Williams and a friend were shooting a video near train tracks in Buckhead at the time of the accident. Williams was jumping rope while the friend shot video.
Sad sad story, but c’mon man! You think a train is as skinny as the tracks that it rides on? Have you ever watched a movie with a train? They are huge. So do I feel bad for this guy? Not really. Do I feel bad for his family? Of course. The article goes on to say that a GoFundMe has been started to help raise money for his 6 year old daughter. This shit is also getting out of control. Everyone is starting a GoFundMe for themselves. Sure this is a different circumstance, but why can’t the family pull together and supply the needed funds to help his daughter. Like Darryl Talley, this GoFundMe account will not see a penny from me.
