Survivor Star Caleb Bankston's Family Receives A Nice Gesture From The Train Company Where He Worked & Lost His Life

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadReality TV

It's such a sad story, but at least there are people out there trying to help.

Caleb Bankston lost his life during a freak train derailment in Alabama. He ended up tragically crushed between 2 rail cars while conducting work on a train. It seems the train jumped off the tracks and the rear car smashed into the forward car.

It's truly sad that the Survivor contestant lost his life simply while doing his job, but the hardworking man he was is not being overlooked.

Watco Companies - the company that operates the Alabama Warrior Railway where the derailment occurred, which is the company Caleb worked for - will be paying for his funeral expenses.

The company got in touch with his family and promised to pay all expenses for his funeral being held today in Alabama.

It won't bring Caleb back, but this is a kind gesture to ease the pain his family and friends are surely going through.
