Pregnant Texas Teen Killed While Posing For Modeling Shoot On Train Tracks [PHOTOS]By: Monya Fleming
A pregnant Texas teen named Fredzania "Zanie" Thompson was fatally struck by a train on Friday while posing on railroad tracks for modeling photos.
Thompson, 19, was doing a photoshoot with a friend in Navasota, Texas when she was hit by a train. Dallas police revealed two trains were approaching the railroad crossing from opposite directions. The teenager was watching for an oncoming train and her back was turned toward the other track. She attempted to cross the track to avoid one train and was struck by the other one.
Thompson was rushed to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Her friend that was taking the photos was unharmed.
Just two weeks ago, Zanie told her fiance Darnell Chatman that she was pregnant. Her fiance said, "Zanie had the most beautiful smile. I believe she would want everyone to know what a kind and caring person she is."
Fredzania was trying to launch a modeling career. The final photo taken of her just before the tragic incident shows her smiling at the camera in a black outfit and heels.
The final photo of Thompson was used in her funeral announcement from the Psalms Funeral Home, showing her smiling in the final moments of her life.
Friends of Thompson have started a GoFundMe page to help with costs of her funeral and burial.
The GoFundMe page states, "We are asking for support from our local community and surrounding areas to help raise money for the funeral of Fredzania Thompson anyone that knows her she always had that beautiful smile at every sight of her. She was one of the most beautiful caring person you could ever meet."
Thompson will be laid to rest in a ceremony on Saturday.
