California Man Arrested For Allegedly Taking Leg Of Person Killed By Train

A California man was arrested after allegedly taking a leg from the scene of a deadly train collision in Wasco on Friday.

Officials reportedly said that 27-year-old Resendo Tellez removed evidence from the site after a person was struck and killed by a train, which severed their leg around 8 a.m. at the city’s Amtrak station.

Disturbing video circulating on social media shows a man appearing to hold a severed body part and eat from it, before wiping his face and making his way down a sidewalk.

The man in the video later appears to raise the body part in the air as law enforcement arrives.

The Kern County Sheriff’s Office reportedly took Tellez into custody without incident on multiple outstanding warrants and for allegedly taking evidence from the scene.

The deadly train collision is under investigation by BNSF Railway.
