Boy with Autism Wanders, Killed by Train

Another ...

A six-year-old autistic boy has been killed by a train south of Melbourne after going missing from his home.

The train hit the boy as he wandered onto the tracks at 7.25pm (AEDT) on Wednesday.

A relative of the boy reported him missing at 7pm, but police say he was gone from his home from 6pm.

About 275 passengers were onboard the V/Line Melbourne to Warrnambool service when the incident occurred in Norlane, in regional Geelong.

The driver was composed as he told passengers the train had hit someone.
