i wonder if they find out it was a prank if they could press charges.. i mean it would be such a cruel thing to have done and all

I heard a story a few years ago of a mountain climber who was stranded and dying managing to get a call through to his wife to say goodbye. Now that must have been heart wrenching for them both.

that's really creepy! how could that happen? I think that the man's cellphone was stolen in that accident and maybe the thief was making sick calls to the family members.. that's horrible. I don't think that I can handle something like that if one of my beloved ones suffer an accident like that..

I don't think that is was real. It may be some thing like public stunt to get the people for the media. Or may be someone when rescuing them, a odd person may took the phone and make the calls. But it was very bad to hear about the train crash. Have a nice time. Thank you.

somethings are just unexplainable.. but yeah it could have been a prank.. but weirder things have happened and i have heard a lot of stories about calls from beyond etc

it does sound creepy but I imagine with the accident something happened in the structure and maybe like a short or something that just kept on redialing....weird though!

do a search on his name and you will find a ton of sources that covered the story that are all legit sites and sources.. no one knows what the deal is but obviously very weird

I find it very sad but I am glad they talked to him, it almost looks like he called to be found.

im glad it gave them comfort.. i dont know if that would make me feel better or not because i would have all that false hope thinking he was alive to dial it
