My nephew, Jeff LaValle, was killed by the third rail electrocution while boarding the redline on 6/30/13. Just a few days earlier another man was electrocuted on the redline. These stories are all too common.

We need to educate the public on the dangers of the third rail

      Jeff Lavalle's memory will live with me, as he was an amazing guy. Perpetuating his memory by educating people on the dangers of the third rail shows yet another example of the positivity he shared in life and what he can accomplish from the other side.
