Legendary Fitness Model Who Died Trying To Outrace A Speeding Train
Greg Plitt. George Gregory Plitt, Jr. (November 3, 1977 – January 17, 2015) was an American fitness model, actor and former Army Ranger. He starred in the Bravo television series Work Out. He died at age 37 when he was struck by a train locomotive while filming a video.
Greg died doing something he truly love which is inspiring and motivating people to push themselves to their limits and live a healthier life. Plitt was hit and killed by the southbound Metrolink Antelope Valley Line train 268 in Burbank, California, on January 17, 2015, while running between the rails. His death was recorded by the camera mounted in the cab of the engine. After examining the video, police reportedly told TMZ Plitt may have been trying to outrace the train when it approached for a video he was shooting. He was shortly after knocked off the tracks and out of frame. He may have believed the train was coming up behind him on a parallel track, not the one he was on. The video was for a self-produced energy drink commercial.
