Remember the Deaf person from Colorado who was killed when a train hit him? He has been identified — his name is Saw Eh and he is a refugee from Myanmar.
Saw’s mother told media that her family moved here six years ago and that Saw crossed the train tracks every day. At the time of his death, the rail was testing its line — the commuter train officially opened a few days after Saw’s death.
Saw’s brother-in-law said Saw probably assumed there would be no train since there were frequent testing of the warning light and crossing arms, without no train passing. He believes Saw did not realize that there would be an actual train crossing on that day.
The mother said she found out her son died after coming back from church and cried a lot. She said she has been suffering since — that he was honest, obedient, and very helpful around the house. Very sad.
