PayPal vice president killed by commuter train in CaliforniaPA


The vice president of PayPal has been killed after being hit by a commuter train in California.

The train operator, Caltrain, said that Eric Salvatierra, 39, was standing on the tracks with his bike on Friday morning in Menlo Park when he was hit.

Mr Salvatierre, who had worked for PayPal for five years, was a "doting dad" to three girls under 10, and his family say there was nothing to suggest he was suicidal.

An investigation is underway to try and determine why he was on the tracks, according to the Daily Mail.
