That was really fucked up. That guy is a fucking asshole, straight up. Then again, I saw the news report during my lunch break, and caught myself wondering if there would be any graf visible in the footage of the freight train, so I guess I'm sort of an asshole myself.

FUKEN SAD !!!!

 

 

LOS ANGELES (Feb. 4) - He wasn't known to the public, but his message left a lasting impression in many minds.

 

His bleeding body trapped under debris after a train wreck last week, John Phipps scrawled a message to his wife and children in his own blood on an upended seat: "I (heart symbol) my kids. I (heart symbol) Leslie.''

 

Rescuers managed to pull Phipps from the wreck, and he came forward Thursday to talk about what he believed would be his last moments alive.

 

"I got up, went to work, survived and got to tell my wife and kids what I thought would be my last words,'' Phipps said at a news conference, flanked by about a dozen firefighters who took part in the train rescue.

 

Phipps sustained injuries to his head and groin and had internal bleeding in the Jan. 26 crash that killed 11 people and injured 200.

 

Phipps said he was called to work early that day at an aerospace plant in Burbank, so he went in on a train he normally wouldn't take. He sat upstairs in the double-deck train, went to sleep and remembers waking up and feeling mist falling on his face.

 

The 44-year-old looked around, saw broken bits of train and knew something was wrong.

 

When he touched the back of his head, his hands were covered with blood. He called out for help, but no one answered right away.

 

He tried to lift his head but couldn't. His whole body was trapped under debris. As he waited, he sang "Why Me Lord?''

 

Reaching out, he felt a chair and saw his bloody handprint. That was when he decided to write his message.

 

 

Heart-Touching Message

 

 

 

 

"I don't know why I did it. I didn't think they would see it,'' said Phipps, on crutches and wearing a Los Angeles Fire Department hat and shirt.

 

Firefighters say it was easy to understand why Phipps thought he was going to die. Capt. Robert Rosario, the first to reach Phipps and the message, said Phipps was bleeding from below the waist and complained of pain in his legs, back and ribs.

 

"I've seen some gruesome things on this job,'' said Rosario, who called Phipps lucky considering two of the people who died were only feet from him. "But that moved me. My only thoughts at that point was I have to get this seat to his wife and kids.''

 

The seat has been kept as evidence and will be used at Alvarez's trial, officials said.

 

After he was removed from the wreckage, he was taken to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. Hospital officials did not release his name at his request, even though they received about 100 calls from the public and media inquiring about him.

 

The Los Angeles Fire Department received about 700 calls from people concerned about Phipps' well-being.

 

Phipps has three children, a daughter Shara, 22, and two sons, Jeremy, 19, and Josh, 15, all of whom attended the news conference.

 

Leslie Phipps said she doesn't remember how she first learned about the message, but a nurse gave the family a photo that appeared in the paper. "Hallmark is never going to top that,'' she said. "It's moving, it's thoughtful and it's chilling all at the same time.''

 

Asked what he thought about the man who allegedly caused the wreck by parking his car on the tracks in an apparent suicide attempt, Phipps said he told his kids: "There isn't a thing on this planet to give up your life for.''
