They were laying candles at the crossing where he died one week earlier.
Two brothers in North Carolina have been killed by a train while mourning a third brother who died at the exact same spot.
Pablo Tiquiram Us, 29, and Jose Chilambalam Tiquiram Us, 20, were struck by a Charlotte light rail train during a memorial at the tracks where 27-year-old Baltazar Tiquiram Us was killed just one week earlier.
According to the Charlotte Observer, on July 26, Baltazar was driving his Toyota Tundra pickup truck and was approaching the crossing near South Boulevard.
"Two brothers were mourning the loss of another brother who had been struck last week... this week, they had been memorializing their brother on the one-week anniversary of his death... they were conducting a memorial out by the site where he was killed, and unfortunately the two brothers were also struck by the train while they were on foot, and they both succumbed to their injuries pretty quickly."
He said he did not know how long they had been on the tracks beforehand; but per video evidence, both men appeared to react to the warnings, just not quick enough: "I can say that as the train was approaching, they appeared to look at it before they were struck."
He said all three deaths "had impairment involved."
"I cannot imagine losing three of your children, three of you siblings, within a week to such tragic circumstances," Sgt Adams added.
