"No kidding, that job sounds awesome, especially as I lost my job last March. I would kill for that job!"
If you'd kill for a job, there are better paying positions than mail handling. Look into trash jobs in New Jersey.

Firstly, you'd be very surprised how a train can come up behind you and you don't notice until it's close by. It seems counterintuitive but I've seen it happen (and had it happen to me in my youth) more than once. But more to the point, she had five children in tow, and when you need to get five young kids to do anything, you can easily lose track of one or more for a few seconds, and that's all it takes to end up in a position where some of the kids are on one side of a moving train and some on the other. While you'd think it's not a big deal, a lot of sober people get killed walking on train tracks every year, so I agree that this is one for the police.
