Fitness model George Plitt struck and killed by train in California.

Fitness model and television actor Greg Plitt was struck and killed by a commuter train in Burbank, California, on Saturday while filming on the tracks.Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Transit Services Bureau said that he was struck by a Metrolink train at 4.10pm on Front Street, north of the Metrolink station.

He had a successful career as a model appearing on the covers of some 200 fitness magazines and 25 romance novels and was the face of Thierry Mugler’s Angel Men and Ice Men fragrances He also made it onto the big screen with roles alongside Robert DeNiro in The Good Shepherd, Christian Bale in Terminator Salvation and starred as the body of Dr Manhattan in The Watchmen. But Plitt, a West Point graduate who served five years in the Army, has been on the cover of magazines more than 200 times and appeared on Bravo’s reality show “Work Out” and “Friends to Lovers,” AP said. 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. “It’s like a blind turn,” he said. “When the train came, you might not be able to tell which set the train is on.” It was not immediately clear what the men were filming.
