    CA - Rachel Garta for child endangerment, San Diego, 2005

    SAN DIEGO -- Police arrested a San Diego woman after she allegedly put her 2-year-old son in front of a freight train and, later, in front of a Trolley Tuesday evening.

    Investigators said Rachel Garta, 22, pushed the boy onto tracks near Front Street and Harbor Drive, NBC 7/39 reported.

    Witnesses said the boy stood on the tracks as a freight train approached at about 7:30 p.m. The conductor saw the boy and hit the emergency brakes, stopping the train before it hit the child.

    At that point, witnesses said, a Trolley security guard yelled at the woman and boy to get off the tracks.

    Police said the woman then pushed the boy onto the other tracks, where a Trolley was approaching, NBC 7/39 reported. The Trolley operator also stopped in time, and a Trolley security officer pulled the boy off the tracks.

    Mindi,

    I agree. If you don't want your children, give them to someone who will take care of them, and love them, and give them a good life. Don't KILL them, or in this case, try to.

    Why wasn't an investigation done the first time she put the boy in front of the trolley?
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    I just heard the story on tv. What the H*LL is wrong with her!! She tried this twice!! I agree, she could have taken/given him to someone if the thought she was going to hurt him. That poor little boy, I'm sure he didn't know what she was trying to do. They need to put that beeyotch UNDER the jail. I just don't understand it, never could, never will.

    I really can't understand any of these women who hurt or try to hurt their kids.


    So many people can't have kids and would love the opportunity to become a parent to one of these little darlings whose mothers don't even care if they live or die.

    I think because it happened on the same day, one right after the other. The boy was put on the train tracks, the train stopped then a trolley was coming and she put him in front of the trolley, luckily, they both stopped in time. Sick people man.

    If i was on that train when she tried to do it the first time I would have jumped off and called the police and not let her try it again.

    You are so right SadieMae he probably had no idea what was going on which makes me even more sad. This little guy putting all of his trust into her and she just shoves him in front of a train and he just like ok mommy.

    These people need some kind of reality check, like me smacking the heck out of her on a daily basis.

    I don't understand this either and it makes me absolutely furious. Poor little guy was probably confused and had no idea that his mother was trying to harm him. Children are so innocent and it's the parent's responsibility to protect them, NOT HURT THEM!!!!!

    You're right, there are so many people in this world that would give just about anything to have a child to love and give a good home to. I personally know two couples that can't have children and would just about sell their souls to the devil to have a child.

    This b*tch needs to be put under the jail.

    At least the boy is unharmed- and will go into foster care or at least not be under her care anymore.

    I really doubt she was a loving mother to him before this. JMHO

    Those train/trolley drivers were really alert. Thank goodness they stopped in time. They deserve recognition for being on the ball. I know that is their job, but still they both saved that boy's life.

    They must have updated the story at the first link, because it seems they are now giving a different version of this. If that's true, and she really was disoriented (and standing holding her son in front of the first train), then I'm not sure she did this on purpose.
