A French tourist jumped off a moving train to her death as it passed through a small town in Iowa, officials said Tuesday.
The woman, 31, was clearly "uncomfortable" on the train and made the other passengers nervous as she moved from seat to seat, Montgomery County Sheriff Joe Sampson said.
A conductor came and sat next to her, trying to calm her down and explaining that the train would be stopping in Omaha, Nebraska in just over an hour.
She wouldn't be calmed however, and suddenly jumped up, ran through the carriage and yanked open a door at around 9:50 pm Monday.
