The family was close to the tracks just before 6 o’clock when the one-mile long fog stopped for about 12 seconds and blocked its way to a nearby bus stop. Collins told the children to rush under, the authorities said.

The boy crawled under a railway ticket successfully, while Joy Anna was reluctant, Dyer said Tuesday.

Collins called “Hurry!”, He said.

When she was encouraged by the mother to cross the track, she also went under the railroad car and tried to get to the other side, “said Dyer.

When the girl tried to cross the train she got caught and she was caught. Collins was chasing after her pulled her from the train after she was pulled 500 meters, police said.

She died on the scene from her injuries. The police said Collins had directed their children to endanger themselves in a similar way earlier.

James Whitehead only lives feet from the tracks and saw Harris pulled off the train, Fresno Bee reported. He climbed over a six footstep separating his farm from the tracks and giving the hunt.

“Where is the child? Where is the child? “He said to himself according to the paper.” We have seen five or six people die on the tracks here, but never children. “

Dyer said that when police arrested Collins, he understood that she was also suffering from the loss of her daughter.

” We know she hurts, “he said.” I hope people understand that there is a balance like we must achieve in law enforcement. Nobody last night wanted to arrest the mother for this crime but the law is the law. “
