A train-surfing daredevil has died after being electrocuted and burned while riding on the outside of a New York City-bound train, according to messages posted on his Facebook page. Brian McClellen, 21, was found on top of a train, on fire, after he hit an electrical wire, very early on Sunday morning. The New York Post reports that the train lost power and stopped, that's when crew-members discovered McClellen and doused him with fire extinguishers. The Hartford Courant reports that McClellen had burns on 85 percent of his body.
He was a model and an actor who was about to start shooting a TV show with Hilary Duff.
Here are the photos to remember a life that ended far too soon:
