MILTON, Fla. (AP) - Authorities said a train struck and killed a
28-year-old man while he was fishing off a train tressel.

Santa Rosa County Sheriff's deputies said Thomas Kevin Halls was
fishing Sunday with two other people when an eastbound train approached at 36 miles per hour.

The group tried to get out of the way, but Halls was struck and thrown into the water.

Hall's fishing buddy jumped into the water after him.

A nearby boater also came to Halls' aid before emergency personnel and a Life Flight arrived on the scene.

Halls died from his injuries while being transported to the hospital, his friends were not injured during the incident.
