Another tuna to surprise the railroad employee. Must have been frightening. Did he fall onto the tracks or did someone place him there. The police will do a complete job on this one to find out.

The man... appeared to be between his late 20s and early 40s, police said.

Hang on, he's got a leg off, not his head. Can't they be a bit more precise than that?
