Really Bad Luck

Check this out:
POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- A man who was struck in the head by a train this weekend was also hit in the head by a New York City subway car three years ago, officials said Monday.

Parker T. Hall Houghtaling, of Stanfordville, 23, was hit in the head Nov. 18 by a Metro-North train as it pulled into the Poughkeepsie station. He was listed in stable condition Monday.

In 2002, Houghtaling was waiting at a subway station in Manhattan when he stuck his head out and was hit by a subway car. He was hospitalized with a shoulder injury, nose fractures and bruises, according to the Metropolitan Transit Authority.
OK, either this guy has some really bad mazel when it comes to riding trains - or he has to start stepping back from the edge of the platform.

Boy, how many trains does he have to get hit by before he stops sticking his head out over the track to see how close the train is? Does this make the train come faster? (People do this ALL THE TIME on the NY subways, and it never makes the train conductor drive faster.)
