A man died after jumping in front of a northbound train at the intersection of Blackstone and McKinley, Sunday, Sept. 30.

The man, apparently in his early 20s, seemed to have intentionally jumped in front of a freight train shortly after 9 a.m. according to preliminary information provided by Lt. Michael Landon of the Fresno police department.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency medical services.

The train was stopped and the intersection was completely blocked on all sides.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is a 24-hour hotline providing “free and confidential support for people in distress, prevention and crisis resources for you or your loved ones,” according to their website. The Lifeline can be reached at 1-800-273-8255.

The Psychological Services Office offers free counseling to Fresno City College students. Their office is located on the second floor of the student store, open Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

About the Contributors
Tommy Tribble, Editor-in-Chief

Tommy Tribble is the 24-year-old editor-in-chief of The Rampage, formerly the opinion editor. Tommy is an English major, a writer, an aspiring novelist, and a Capricorn. He’s talented, or whatever, but mostly he’s just tired.

Tommy’s passion in life is storytelling. He always imagined that passion would take shape as the dragons and swords of fantasy novels, or the androids and supernovas of science fiction. He was shocked to discover that his career at Fresno City College would lead him to fulfill the dream in another way: documenting the lives and experiences of students. Journalism, pure and simple.

Tommy hopes his tenure as EIC will mean a Rampage that is queer, colorful, and welcoming to people of all kinds, especially the marginalized and the forgotten. He wants his legacy to be radical inclusivity.

So basically he’s gonna wing it.

He has an orange cat named Sora, and he’s working every day to buy him even nicer cat food and toys, and one day an apartment of their own.
