An Amtrak long distance train struck a person in Maryland just North of Washington, DC. The person jumped from the platform of a commuter station into the front of the high speed train. The impact was to the windscreen directly in front of the engineer, causing broken glass and body matter to spray the train operator. The unrecognizable body can be seen hanging off of the lead car.
Police believe the man leaped from the top of the ritzy Mandarin Oriental Hotel at Columbus Circle shortly after 9 p.m., police and sources said.

He hit the hotel’s glass awning on the way down, and his body split in half.
An arm was found across the street, where construction scaffolding was seen dripping with blood, they added. Sources said the victim appeared to be wearing pajamas.
