Close. BTW, Wrong board. There was this FOOL who jumped on the tracks. He then walked into the tunnel before 59th Street (Onto Sea beach) and started spray painting (Grafitti). He then got struck by a Manhattan - bound (D) Train.

the 59th Street incident was because of someone doing graffiti on the tracks and got hit by a train. This is why you stay away from the train tracks.

the Dekalb Ave incident was a work train derailment (RD407); AFAIK the switch moved while the train was over it causing the derailment.
here is a photo that was spread on facebook (idk who took it):
