How awful!

The Survivor community was rocked to it's core yesterday after one of their own was taken too soon in a freak accident.

Caleb Bankston, who competed on Survivor: Blood vs. Water, died when the train he was on derailed on Tuesday in Birmingham. The details of the accident remain unknown, though we do know that he worked for the Alabama Warrior Railway and that it is very possible he was working at the time of his death.

Caleb competed alongside his fiance Colton Cumbie in the 2013 edition of the show, placing ninth. They were due to marry in October.

Our condolences go out to Colton and all who loved Caleb in this dark and sad time.

    Ok guys really. Don't you think its just a bit tacky (or VERY tacky) that the picture you show of this man when reporting his death is when Jeff Probst is snuffing his flame?
    I see what you did there. Not cool.
