A 19-year-old expectant mother from Texas was killed by an incoming BNSF Railway train on Friday. According to the authorities, the woman was a modeling aspirant, and before she was killed, she was doing a photoshoot on the tracks. The young woman was attending the Blinn College but, according to her mother, turned her back on her studies for a career in modeling. The man who was taking pictures was not hurt during the incident.
Fredzania Thompson was a 19-year-old woman from the town of Navasota, Texas. Although she attended the Blinn College in Bryan, Thompson’s dream was to seek a career in modeling. To this end, on Friday, she decided to leave behind her studies and to have her first real photoshoot.
Accompanied by a photographer, Thompson left home early in the morning and went outside the city for a photo session. For a more dramatic effect, the woman and her photographer chose a barren area outside the city of Navasota, traversed by a pair of train tracks.
Before the tragic incident, Thompson’s photographer managed to take a few photos of the woman, who was about to become a mother for the second time. Thompson’s last photo depicted the woman smiling towards the camera, blissful, happy, and pondering about what the future may have in stock. Unfortunately, that was to be the young mother’s last photograph.
According to the authorities, during her photo shoot, the woman and her photographer heard a train coming down the tracks. The two left the tracks, but Thompson took a few extra steps in order to make sure that nothing happened. However, she was hit by a BNSF Railway train coming from the opposite direction.
The photographer quickly dialed 911 and told them all about the accident. An ambulance arrived after a couple of minutes in order to take the modeling aspirant to the local hospital. Regrettably, due to her severe injury, Fredzania Thompson did not survive the trip to the hospital. Thompson would have turned 20 this Monday.
Earl Chatman, Thompson’s 25-year-old fiancé, declared that what happened to the woman is awful. He wants everyone to remember his significant as being a kind and caring person. This is indeed a tragic turn of events, as Chatman learned a couple of days ago that he would become a father for the second time.
Fredzania Thompson is survived by her 7-year-old son with Earl Chatman.
