More than 100 people participated in the 8th annual Dayton Peace Accords 5K Walk/Run Saturday morning, a fundraiser for the Dayton International Peace Museum, including some who decided to run just last night.

Though many in the greater Dayton running community had signed for the Peace run before the tragedies in Boston unfolded, they said they held images of the last week in their hearts as they ran.

“This is one way of conveying our message of creating an environment of peace,” Bashir G. Ahmed, a broad member and director of operations for the peace museum said, “We hope it will make a difference.”

Carl Brun, 53, of Dayton and his wife Karla, 56, participate in the Dayton Peace run every year. After 20 years of training, Carl said he qualified for the Boston Marathon two years ago. He would have been in Boston again last week, if he had qualified for the race. His parents would have been at the finish line cheering him on.

“Everyone who is a marathon runner wants to run in Boston one day. We’re saddened by what happened,” Brun said.

2 creating YouTube video survive close call with train, Fairborn fire official says

Two escape injury when recording YouTube stunt on railroad tracks

Two people videotaping for the purpose of posting their exploits to YouTube escaped injury Monday night when one of them rolled off the tracks as a train approached, officials said.

The second person apparently standing too close to the tracks was thrown to the ground when the train hit the backpack the first person was holding, according to the early assessment from witnesses, Fairborn fire Battalion Chief Laura Kerr said.

"We highly recommend that you not do that," she said.

Police and medic units were originally dispatched on a report of a pedestrian hit by a train in the area of Kauffman Avenue and South Central Avenue in Fairborn around 7:15 p.m.

The train conductors are extremely upset because of what happened, Kerr said, noting that such incidents can trigger post traumatic stress for train engineers and conductors. 

"Do not play on the tracks. It's not a play area. Its not an adventure. Its not a story. It's not a good video," she said.

The investigation is continuing, but Kerr said witnesses have told authorities that one of the people involved laid down on the tracks and rolled off at the very last second as the freight train approached. 

The second person, apparently wearing a back pack or book bag, was too close to the tracks, Kerr said. The train hit the back pack or bag, which was ripped off the person. 

"Luckily, no one was pulled under the train," she said, noting the investigation is still so new that she's not sure of the ages or genders of the people involved. 

No word yet on whether police or fire officials will pursue charges against the two people involved in the incident.

In September, 16-year-old Joseph Fernandez was struck and killed by a train in Miamisburg when he tried to perform a stunt. 

“All these videos on YouTube of people doing this exact same stunt and not dying is what encouraged these kids to do this,” Joseph’s uncle Joshua Fernandez said following his death. “People should stop posting this stuff.”
