Train Kills Teen Who Pushed Girlfriend From Tracks

Posted: Updated:
MARYSVILLE, Calif. (AP) - Witnesses and family members say a Northern California teen pushed his girlfriend out of the way of an oncoming train before he was struck and killed.
    
The girlfriend, 16-year-old Mickayla Friend, was critically injured, though her mother, Sandy, said at a vigil Sunday that she was breathing on her own and walking.
    
Mickayla and her boyfriend, 16-year-old Mateus Moore, were heading to a school dance Friday night in Marysville when they were struck by the Union Pacific freight train.
    
According to the Appeal-Democrat of Marysville (http://bit.ly/OOcHN5 ), Sandy Friend said Mickayla told her Mateus pushed her as hard as he could. Witnesses also reported seeing the boy push the girl.
    
Union Pacific said the conductor sounded the horn. Police are looking into whether the teens were distracted.
