LONDON, Ont. -- One minute the London girls were giggling, as the best friends often did.

The next minute, one tried to outrun a freight train as it bore down on nearby tracks.

It was a race Kendra Cameron. 11, couldn't win, leaving behind a shattered family, friends and neighbours shaking with sorrow.
