Celebrating the life of...
Sophie Harris
( - 2008)
Sophie Harris - tragically killed on the Railway tracks at Pencoed
Sophie Harris

16 year old Sophie tragically died in Pencoed (near Bridgend in South Wales) on a Friday night shortly after completing her GCSEs at Ynysawdre School (she planned to train as a Nursery Nurse). The tragic scene unfolded after a boy had stupidly thrown a mobile phone onto the train tracks as a prank, a 13 year old friend of Sophie was attmpting to retrieve the phone, when. Sophie assisted her friend and pushed her off the track to safety, but Sophie herself was not so lucky - she was hit by a train travelling at 85mph and died instantly. Pencoed is a small station on the main line from London to South West Wales - but faster trains do not stop there - as was the case here, the Swansea bound train was speeding through the Pencoed crossing at 9:50 pm that night (and the barriers were correctly down).
