2-Year-Old Hit by Train Dies, Babysitter in Stable Condition

Deputies from the Pasco County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call about the incident around 11.55am. The babysitter, who was holding the 2-year-old, couldn't get out of the way in time and both were hit by the CSX train. Deputies said a 26-year-old female was also hit.

The babysitter is in stable condition.

It happened just before noon near Pattie Rd. and Paul S. Buchman Highway. Investigators say the tracks are elevated roughly 6-feet, due to marshy and often rocky terrain.

The 2-year-old, Hunter Fink, died from his injuries.

According to witnesses, Henderson had taken the child and his four-year-old sister for a walk near the train tracks. It was not immediately made clear if Henderson will face criminal charges in the death of 2-year-old Hunter, but the Pasco County police officials are investigating the train accident.

Authorities said the bridge where they were walking comes after a sharp turn on the tracks, which is why they probably didn't see it coming, WPTV reported.

The train had 133 cars on it and was traveling around 60 miles an hour.

Officials say the train was traveling as much as 60 miles per hour and took a mile and a half to come to a stop.
