Terror on a Train (1 x 60′) – In the 20 years since the Long Island Railroad Massacre, an entire generation has lived in the era of mass murder — Columbine, Virginia Tech, and Sandy Hook. This documentary brings viewers into the aisles of the LIRR train where gunman Colin Ferguson opened fire upon the innocent victims trapped on their rush hour commute home from New York City. Told primarily through interviews with the survivors and families of the victims, we are taken back in time as they share their terrifying experience and how they continue to cope today.
The violent shooting left six people dead, 25 wounded, and a nation left struggling to comprehend a horrific act. The country watched, transfixed by the subsequent trial, as witnesses and survivors were forced to face the madman, Ferguson, who represented himself, during cross examination on live television.
