    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    This is so awful. Hit by a train.

    Nope. It is common for autistic people to be fascinated/intrigued by large machinery like that. Trains, trucks, bulldozers, you name it.

    How terrible it must have been for someone to see that scene I am almost sure death was instantaneous for Kaden, at least. Poor little guy.

    I saw this when it was first posted (unfortunately I couldn't comment at the time) and my heart just sank. I was praying there were no bodies of water nearby... So many kids on the spectrum who wander off and so many face horrible fates like this. RIP baby, I hope your passing educates others, especially caretakers that need to pay closer attention to their little ones.

    My heart just breaks in cases like this. Prayers to his family.

    Are there any answers as to why he was found in Yucca AZ which is about 38 miles from where he went missing in Needles CA?

    According to this link evidence was found that he did get on the train near his home.
    It doesn't say but the train must have been stopped for him to be able to board it.
