A teenager died after being hit by a train just days after another boy was critically injured at the same Birmingham railway station.
The 17-year-old was hit by a Virgin express at Lea Hall station on Wednesday night, just moments after a warning was sent out about teenagers trespassing on the track.
On Sunday, a teenager lost a leg when he was hit by a train at the station in Birmingham's Stechford area.
Ben Morris, aged 16, from Stud Lane, Kitts Green, had climbed on to the roof of a station building to fetch a lost football when he received an electric shock from 25,000 volt overhead cables and was thrown into the path of an on-coming train.
Speaking about the latest tragedy, Network Rail spokesman Richard Barker said: "The train struck a 17-year-old who was crouching by the track.
"Shortly before, youths were spotted playing by the tracks and we were given a warning.
"We are investigating what exactly happened. Reports at the moment say that the youth made no attempt to get out of the way of the train.
"But we are treating this incident as a trespass and not as a suicide."
British Transport Police said the they were alerted to the tragedy after reports that a teenager had been hit by the
18.40 Virgin service from London Euston to Wolverhampton.
A spokesman said: "The body of a male was discovered in the area. The circumstances regarding the incident are being investigated, but are not being treated as suspicious."
Meanwhile, Ben Morris was understood to still be critically ill in Heartlands Hospital after Sunday's incident.
His father, Phil Morris, said earlier this week: "We are devastated about this and we would be equally devastated if it happened to someone else's kid.
"There are definitely problems with access to that station though we do not want to lay the blame on any one person."
The station has been a "problem area" for police for the past few months.
