A runaway train killed seven people and injured at least 11, severing some of their limbs, during the filming of a reality TV show in Uruguay. The TV show, called a Challenge to the Heart, raises money for charities and good causes. In this challenge, contestants were pushing and pulling a train and two carriages when the vehicle gained speed and ran them over. Adding insult to injury, about 3,000 schoolchildren were at the recording and witnessed the horrific accident. This really makes you appreciate OSHA and its role in U.S. reality TV shows. I mean, nobody’s been crunched in Fear Factor, and they do stuff just as wild as this all the time.
