"I hope that nobody feels the way I do right now, you know, I just can't describe what I'm feeling. It's just something big, something big that we weren't expecting to be happening to my little sister," said Miguel Magdaleno, the victim's brother.

The Magdaleno family said they blame the rail agency for failing to provide adequate safety controls.
