Fitness model struck and killed by train in California.

BURBANK, Calif. (AP) – A fitness model and actor featured on the cover of numerous fitness magazines was struck and killed by a train while filming on the tracks in Southern California, authorities said Sunday. Two men were filming George Plitt Jr., 37, on the railroad track north of the Burbank train station Saturday afternoon when Plitt was hit by a Metrolink passenger train, said Burbank Police Sgt. Plitt was described on his website as an “actor, model, entrepreneur and motivational speaker” who had appeared on more than 250 fitness magazine covers.

Investigators, who interviewed witnesses who saw Plitt standing on the track even as the train’s horn was blaring, have ruled out a suicide, he said. Plitt was an actor on the “Days of Our Lives” daytime TV drama and was seen in several movies, including “The Good Shepherd” and “Terminator Salvation,” according to the website. Canales said detectives are still interviewing witnesses, and are still trying to determine what led up Plitt’s death, but suicide has been ruled out. Meanwhile on Sunday friends took to Twitter and other social media outlets to remember Plitt, who had been featured in Bravo’s series “Work Out” and “Work Out In The Zone,” as well as in numerous commericals and other programs. My prayers go to his loved ones.” Former professional football player Joe Donnelly also weighed in, saying, “To simplify Greg Plitt as the top fitness model, actor and motivator would be equivalent in saying Michael Jordan was a guy that played some basketball.” Donnelly said Plitt “inspired millions worldwide with his intensity, passion, charisma and amazing ability ‘light a fire’ in even the coldest of souls.” (©2015 CBS Local Media, a division of CBS Radio Inc.
