Two friends on a mission walked along the railroad tracks, hugging and taking pictures with a digital camera. Heather Bates and Arielle Daniel are pictured here moments before a moving train violently ended their lives. The engineer says one of the girls was looking him in the eyes while he tried desperately to stop the moving train. They made no attempt to leave the track, but waited patiently for the impact.

The girls previously declared their intentions to kill themselves on their Myspace pages. Girls don't usually do this kind of thing. Studies show girls are more likely to ATTEMPT suicide, but in ways that aren't as likely to succeed. It's usually the boys that step in front of trains, and other 99% fatality rate suicide methods. That's a helluva way to prove you're as tough as a boy. Cheers to 'em, though.
